ENERGY STAR® is a national program from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. ENERGY STAR offers a comprehensive approach to reducing energy use and costs for new and existing homes and commercial buildings, while creating healthier, more comfortable spaces for their occupants. Viridiant can help you understand the requirements of the ENERGY STAR program and ensure that your next project qualifies for ENERGY STAR.
EarthCraft directs builders to certified EarthCraft Technical Advisors who can qualify new homes for the ENERGY STAR label. Professional ENERGY STAR Raters advise builders on how to select energy-efficient features for a home, inspect and test the home during construction, and then verify that the home qualifies for the ENERGY STAR.
