LEED®-ing The Way.

At Maracay, we believe your home should be built to the highest standards of health and sustainability. And that’s exactly what we strive to do.

Recognized in 2019 as a 2018 LEED Homes Award Power Builder, our LEED® Certified homes (available at select communities) feature water-efficient fixtures, LED lighting, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, Energy Star® appliances, WiFi-enabled programmable thermostats, and so much more.

LEED® is the U.S. Green Building Council’s verification system that measures compliance across numerous areas of environmental sustainability. According to USGBC, LEED® homes are designed to use 30 to 50 percent less energy than typical homes. Building to LEED®’s specifications is just one part of our green building commitment to Arizona families and the planet.


Breathe Easy.

Your new Maracay home is designed with improved air quality and energy-efficient features that meet the EPA’s Indoor airPLUS requirements. This means your home is optimized to minimize air pollutants, improve comfort and ensure energy is used wisely.

Homes receive this certification by earning the Energy Star® Certified Home label and implementing specific design features that properly seal the home and improve ventilation. We earned the 2019 Indoor airPLUS Leader Award and continue to build homes with the highest indoor air quality features designed for maximum health and well-being.


All About Energy Star®.

When new homes are built with energy savings in mind, everyone wins. Maracay has carefully crafted Energy Star® certified homes since 2010 and continues to construct homes with the latest energy-efficient techniques and products. From WiFi programmable thermostats and Energy Star® appliances to low-e dual pane windows and efficient HVAC systems, your home comes ready with features to reduce energy consumption.

In 2019 and 2016, Salt River Project, one of Arizona’s largest utilities, recognized us with the Champions of Energy Efficiency Award for our long-standing relationship with the government-backed Energy Star® program. Energy Star® certified homes — inspected, tested and verified by independent raters — are up to 30 percent more efficient than typical new homes, which means more green in your pocket and a greener environment.
