Certified Homes/Next Step Site-Built Homes
Building higher performing and more comfortable homes
NEEA is building on the infrastructure created by its past Efficient Homes initiative, with this program that's designed to increase market adoption of energy efficient advanced building practices for single-family homes.
We support the residential new construction industry by providing technical assistance and training to residential home builders and home performance industry partners. We also encourage greater coordination among the multiple home certification programs operating in the market, in order to align energy efficiency requirements and drive participation. And, we raise awareness of energy-efficient home building by creating marketing tools and resources for utilities and industry partners.
Ultimately, the program is aimed at influencing and accelerating code over the next 3-4 cycles so that all new homes in the Northwest are built more efficiently.
