Benefits

There are many benefits to certifying your project with Built Green:

UNLOCK INCENTIVES - Many municipalities and utilities offer incentives for certifying through Built Green. Learn more about your options, which range from cash rebates to expedited permitting.

QUALITY ASSURANCE - All Built Green certifications require third-party verification. Verifiers are a great resource and verification provides an additional level of project scrutiny. Certification means more people have inspected and approved the project.

PROVEN SAVINGS - The standards required by Built Green certification mean that a project is saving resources, water, energy, and, in turn, money! Who doesn’t appreciate lower utility bills?

MARKETING ADVANTAGE - With certification in hand, you can list your project as “green” on the Multiple Listing Service. The certification is proof that this project goes above and beyond. Be sure to convey the project’s environmental and cost savings in your marketing materials!

CUSTOMER SATISFACTION - The vast majority of people who live in a Built Green home have said they are “happy” or “very happy” with their home.
