LEED FOR HOMES
GREENER STOCK encourages homeowners to switch to the LEED for Homes rating system, which “promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes” (USGBC.org). This is one of the several LEED rating systems and is tailored to different building types and project scopes.
A project can achieve one of the four tiers of LEED certification (certified, silver, gold, and platinum). Certification is based on points awarded in the following eight categories:
Energy and Atmosphere
Materials and Resources
Awareness and Education
BENEFITS OF GREEN HOMES
Owners and residents of homes built to the LEED for Homes standards experience many benefits.
Some of these benefits include:
Owners and residents of LEED for Homes buildings can benefit from third-party performance testing as well as verification and certification. They can also be assured that their home is truly green.
