The drive for a US code for green houses

This is an article about an new organization the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) founded for purpose of a national green home rating system, representing more than 230,000 U.S. housebuilding companies. With an extended rating system, in comparison of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) their LEED rating has 4 categories, the NAHB has seven categories: water, energy and resource efficiency; lot and site development; indoor environmental quality; global impact and homeowner education.

My Opinion is that I believe that the NAHB has a better rating system that allow builders to get a better rating that use alternative products, such as renewable resources. A rating system that includes resource efficiency or global impact is as an example for a company like Plasmacor more beneficial to stand out as a builder/manufacturer.

“Jerry Yudelson is president of Yudelson Associates, a green building consultancy located in Tucson, Arizona. He chairs Greenbuild, the USGBC’s annual conference and trade show, to be held in Boston in November. He is the author of six books on green buildings and a forthcoming 2008 book for home buyers on choosing a green home.”

    Im sure many of you are like me and one of the first things you do in the morning is head here and check out the new post. Along with seeing the new posts, I’m also always checking out the blog roll rss feed and watching them grow, or shrink sometimes. In one of my past …but all in all excellent site. Keep it up!
