This US Department of Energy video is an overview of the benefits of what they call the Home of the Future Today which are homes built and certified as Zero Energy Ready Homes.
For years, the minimum green building certification standard BPC Green Builders has built homes to meet has been the US Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Home certification standard. This standard also means the home meets or exceeds the US Environmental Protection Agency’s green building standard called Energy Star and its indoor air quality standard called Indoor airPLUS.
Most homes BPC Builds today exceed the US DOE Zero Energy Ready Standard and also meet the certifications for Passive House and/or achieve Net Zero Energy performance. BPC has also built homes meeting even higher green building standards such as LEED for Homes Platinum, the National Green Building Standard’s top Emerald level, and more.
