Rethink Energy: 65 Certified Green Home Projects Recognized

This regularly-scheduled sponsored column is written by the Arlington Initiative to Rethink Energy team (AIRE). This county program helps you make smart energy decisions that save you money and leaves a lighter footprint on the environment. 

More than 320 Arlingtonians have used Green Home Choice to help make their homes energy efficient, healthy and comfortable. 

Green Home Choice is a County program that offers free sustainability consulting and certification for renovation projects and new home construction.

This year the County honored the homeowners, architects and builders of 65 Green Home Choice certified homes. Green Home Choice projects go beyond creating just an energy efficient home. They include water efficiency, indoor air quality, waste reduction, stormwater management, tree and site preservation and more.

Homeowners living in new Green Home Choice homes save about $1,600 per year on their utility bills compared to other Arlington homes of the same size. Green Home Choice renovation projects save approximately $600 per year.

CONGRATULATIONS to all of the new projects that achieved Green Home Choice certification. Thank you for helping to build a more sustainable Arlington one project at a time!
