GreenPoint Rated

June 3, 2010

On my recent trip to California (San Francisco, Berkeley, and Stanford) I learned about GreenPoint Rated – which is yet another system to achieve “green” homes. It’s hoping to be a bit more affordable than the LEED for Homes application. It was started by Build-It Green, “a membership supported non-profit organization whose mission is to promote healthy, energy and resource efficient homes in California.”

There are 5 categories that it grades:  -resource conservation – indoor air quality – water conservation – community – energy efficiency
