The ENERGY STARnew homes program has been around since the mid-1990s and is currently undergoing the transition to version 3. In case you haven't heard, version 3 is much more rigorous than version 2.
I've only ever worked on Energy Star with Habitat for Humanity. But we have very few HVAC contractors that are Energy Star trained so it's kind of fallen flat. Most of my builders just get a HERS rating in Indiana because there are rebates available from Indiana/Michigan power.
Mandy - We do a lot of green building work in Indiana. We can help with LEED or GreenStar. Let us know.
I sure will, Brett! I believe my boss, Tom Arnold, and I met with you and Mike years ago! Hope you're doing great!
Wow this was written in 2010! Looks ESV3 is done for!
