ENERGY STAR Homes Northwest Program Report #3

ENERGY STAR Homes Northwest promotes the construction and sale of new homes built to the ENERGY STAR Homes Northwest specification, which was designed specifically for the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. Homes built to this specification are at least 15 percent more energy efficient than Washington and Oregon State energy codes. These ENERGY STAR homes also include high efficiency lighting, windows, appliances, water heaters, insulation, and heating and cooling equipment. As a result, it is estimated that these homes save an average of 1,000 to 1,500 kWh per year for gas-heated homes and 3,700 kWh annually for electrically heated homes.
