Home buying or building is complex enough without having to know all the details of energy-efficient construction. ENERGY STAR is the government-backed symbol that identifies new homes, buildings, and more than 50 types of energy-efficient products that offer the features, quality and performance that today’s consumers expect.

A competitive edge for ENERGY STAR builders

The EPA’s ENERGY STAR program helps builders meet consumers’ growing demand for high quality, energy-efficient homes. It is a proven partnership program that has helped builders construct energy-efficient homes for over a decade.

To date, more than 5,000 builders have partnered with EPA to construct over 840,000 ENERGY STAR qualified homes. By the end of the decade, more than 2 million homes are expected to earn the ENERGY STAR. The trend is clear.

There is no cost to enroll as a partner with ENERGY STAR. The EPA and REC provide builders with valuable recognition for their participation. ENERGY STAR builder-partners also have access to a variety of technical and marketing materials.
