1st EMERALD Certified Home in Delaware

By Lance Manlove, in Green Product

Zero Energy is pleased to announce that we have completed the first EMERALD certified home in DE to the National Green Building Standard.

The home is situated in Wolfe Pointe, a coastal development in Lewes, DE.  Zero Energy is the leader in green construction and custom energy efficient design.  They also finished the first GOLD certified home in DE, May 2010 – this home is located in Rehoboth Beach Yacht and Country Club.

You may wonder how does building a certified home help me?  First, by having a third party certify the home, the homeowner is assured that the correct techniques and products are being utilized by the builder to complete the home.  Second, currently in DE there are incentives that pay out cash grants for building a certified home – GOLD $5,000 and EMERALD $6,000.  Lastly, the resell value of the home will increase by have the certified home.  All of the requirements in the Green Building Standard are there to ensure the home will be healthy, comfortable, energy efficient, and built to last.
