As more and more potential home buyers demand “green “ for their new homes builders are listening and providing homes that meet the latest in energy efficient technology.
“Which builders will give me the best energy efficient package with my new home?”, Is a question that I hear quite often from prospective new home buyers,” according to Ralph Bredahl Associate Broker
with HomeSmart Realty in Gilbert and Chandler Arizona. There seems to be a lot of smoke and mirrors when it comes to green energy and the home buyer can be left very confused. The purpose of this release is to attempt to cut though this and provide Arizona home buyers with an idea of which builders meet their needs.
ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.
Results are already adding up. Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved enough energy in 2010 alone to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 33 million cars — all while saving nearly $18 billion on their utility bills.
Energy efficient choices can save families about a third on their energy bill with similar savings of greenhouse gas emissions, without sacrificing features, style or comfort. ENERGY STAR helps you make the energy efficient choice.
Builders that meet or exceed the Energy Star ratings for new homes in Gilbert, Chandler, Mesa, Ahwatukee, San Tan Valley and Queen Creek Arizona are all listed below.

Meritage Homes get a special mention here since they seem to be a leader in energy efficient homes. From their unique standards in building techniques and the energy-efficient features they include in every home, at no extra cost, to being able to build you a Net Zero home, all their homes far exceed the energy-efficiency (HERS) ratings of most lived-in homes. They also go beyond the HERS ratings of other national homebuilders, and surpass the Federal requirements to make every home they build 100% ENERGY STAR® certified.
