Realtors are working with builders, home raters, lenders, and energy companies in a partnership called the North Caroina Energy Efficiency Alliance.  Our mission is to increase awareness of the benefits of Energy Star homes.  Consumers benefit financially, scarce resources are conserved, the environmental impact is lessened, etc.

What is considered "energy efficient?"

It's a combination of high quality windows, high quality insulation, airl sealing, duct sealing, and properly sized heating and cooling systems.

How can I pay for the extra costs associated with building an Energy Star home?

You may qualify for an Energy Efficient Mortgage to help pay for extra initial costs.  Visit to learn more.
