Green Building Certification Information and Checklists

These are checklists and information booklets about the different kinds of green-built homes you are likely to encounter in Western North Carolina. Visit Go Green! for more information specifically on green building and going green.

  • North Carolina HealthyBuilt Homes Program This certification gives you a balance of energy efficiency and good health for yourself and the planet. It includes Energy Star certification and goes beyond. You can compare this check list with the Energy Star list below. As you can see, the builder doesn't have to do everything on the list, so you need to let your builder know what features you want or need before you build. If you're buying an existing certified homes, you should find out what items were included from the checklist. Click here to read the PDF in your browser, or right-click to download it.

  • Energy Star Guidebook and Checklist This booklet is very helpful in understanding exactly what needs to be done for certification. There's also glossary at the back, after the checklist. Click here to read the PDF in your browser, or right-click to download it.
