EPA Names Brighton Homes 2014 EnergyStar Partner of the Year

Boise Idaho Energy Star BuilderBoise, Idaho, April 3, 2014 – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named Brighton Homes as a 2014 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for its outstanding contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through building ENERGY STAR homes. Brighton’s accomplishments will be recognized in Washington, D.C. on April 29, 2014.

Brighton Homes, an ENERGY STAR partner since 2009, is being honored for its work in building new homes that meet ENERGY STAR requirements for energy efficiency.

As evidenced in meetings with potential buyers, having an EnergyStar certified home has become a crucial part of the homebuying process. EnergyStar is a key component in our commitment to build energy efficient homes, it gives us actual metrics to back it up, and it is an integral part of our marketing. We were awarded the 2012 NW EnergyStar Regional Builder of the Year Award.

A few of the things that Brighton does differently that sets them apart include having a limited number of companies they use to ensure consistency, designing for efficient HVAC layouts, and most importantly educating their trade partners. Brighton University was set up to hold regular meetings for trade partners and staff to educate on proper techniques, new technology, trends, and best practices.

“Brighton Homes takes pride in building our homes to ENERGY STAR requirements,” said Lars Hansen, President of Brighton Homes. “ENERGY STAR homes are more comfortable and ensure long-term savings for our customers on their energy bills, all while protecting the environment.”

“I applaud Brighton Homes for setting a high bar for new home construction with ENERGY STAR,” said EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe. “These builders are helping homebuyers save money on energy bills and live in more comfortable homes, all while protecting the environment and fighting climate change.”

The 2014 Partner of the Year Awards are given to a variety of organizations to recognize their contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through superior energy efficiency. Award winners are selected from the 16,000 organizations that participate in the ENERGY STAR program.

ENERGY STAR certified new homes use substantially less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating; in fact, homeowners who buy ENERGY STAR certified homes can expect to use 15-30% less energy than a typical new home. Currently, over 2,700 home builders across the nation are constructing homes that meet EPA’s strict requirements for energy efficiency. More than 1.5 million American families now live in ENERGY STAR certified homes.

Through 2013, with help from ENERGY STAR, American families and businesses have saved $297 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 2.1 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
