All About Energy Star®

When new homes are built with energy savings in mind, everyone wins. Our green-building story began in 2010, when we teamed with the EPA’s Energy StarÒ program to construct Arizona homes to the highest energy-efficient standards. In 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 StarÒ program. Energy StarÒ-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 more green for the environment.

LEED®-ing the Way

We are constantly seeking new ways to expand our green building practices. Our LEED® Certified homes (available in select neighborhoods) meet the EPA’s Indoor airPLUS specifications and feature water-efficient fixtures, LED lighting, energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, Energy Star® appliances, Wi-Fi enabled, programmable thermostats and much more. LEED® is the U.S. Green Building Council’s verification system that measures compliance across numerous areas of environmental sustainability. According to the USGBC, LEED® homes are designed to use up to 50 percent less energy than typical homes, adding thousands of dollars of savings over the seven or eight years a typical family lives in a home.
