What is LEED?

The LEED Rating System is the nationally recognized standard for green building. LEED certification recognizes and rewards builders for meeting the highest performance standards, and gives homeowners confidence that their home is durable, healthy, and environmentally friendly. The LEED for Homes program was developed for builders seeking to build certified high performance green homes that go beyond energy efficiency to incorporate a high level of sustainability features. Building a project that is LEED for Homes certified offers a distinct mark of excellence that can serve to highlight the builder’s experience. For the homebuyer, LEED is like the highly recognized nutrition label that demonstrates in measurable terms that a home incorporates efficient techniques and features, and that the final product has been third party-verified and performance tested.
