Green Built North Carolina

Green-Built-NC-LogoGreen Built NC Homes is a statewide program in North Carolina that provides a certificate for builders who meet “green home” guidelines. These guidelines emphasize comfort, health, energy and water conservation, site preservation, and renewable energy use.

This certification includes either ENERGY STAR certification (or a HERS Index of 85 or less and showing that the house is 15% better than the 2009 International Energy Code), plus inspection of additional items specific to the Green Built NC program.
