The 2023 High Performance Home Tour, Showcasing certified green homes throughout the Triangle
Homes do NOT have to be complete, and often it is easier to show the green building features that are "behind the walls" in an incomplete home. Home may be owner occupied with the owner's approval. Green certified remodeling projects are also eligible to enter!
*Certificate costs are typically less than 1% of the cost of the home.
Newly constructed homes (and remodel projects) that are being certified through the following green certification programs are eligible:
Projects must demonstrate 3rd Party verified compliance with a high-performance home program, including but not limited to:
o Energy Star for Homes
o NGBS (National Green Building Standard)
o LEED for Homes
o DOE Zero Energy Ready Home
o Environments for Living
o Passive House
o HERS (Home Energy Rating Score) w Solar designed to offset a minimum of 80% of total electricity use (net-zero and net zero ready homes); If solar is not installed then a solar quote must be provided as part of the marketing materials demonstrating a home is "net-zero ready";
o Other 3rd Party verified program that demonstrates the builder’s commitment to building a healthy-built, energy-efficient home.
Need assistance in making sure your home is eligible? Email Jamie Hager at Southern Energy Management for guidance.
