Prospective homeowners interested in buying or building a LEED home should contact one of the LEED for Homes Providers in their area. If there is not a provider in your area, please feel free to contact a nearby provider. USGBC will be adding new providers as the LEED for Homes program accelerates.
LEED for Homes is a voluntary rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes, including affordable housing, mass-production homes, custom designs, stand-alone single-family homes, duplexes and townhouses, suburban low-rise apartments, urban high-rise apartments, and condominiums and lofts in historic buildings.
LEED Homes are safer, healthier, more comfortable and more durable than conventional homes. They have lower energy and water bills, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and fewer problems with mold, mildew and indoor toxins.
LEED certification is something that consumers can look for to readily identify homes that have been third-party inspected, performance-tested and certified as truly green homes that will perform better than standard homes. Homebuilders using LEED are able to differentiate their homes as among the best on the market.
