Boise, Idaho, 04/02/2018 – Brighton Homes is proud to announce that it received the 2018 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award for continued leadership and superior contributions to ENERGY STAR. Brighton Homes’ accomplishments will be recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on April 20, 2018.
“We build homes and neighborhoods because we truly enjoy the craft and we are passionate about serving the community in which we live. As a result, Brighton Homes has a reputation for integrity and dependability that we work hard to earn every day. Because of the consistency with which we have participated in the Energy Star Program over the years, we are able to offer a new home warranty that truly reflects our confidence in the quality of our work. With components covered up to 3 years by our own warranty service, we gain a tremendous advantage over our competition. We could not be as certain of our homes’ performance without the Energy Star program. For Brighton Homes, it is not an aspect of our business that requires a ROI analysis to see the importance,” said Lars Hansen, President of Brighton Homes.
