Designated Minnesota Green Path Builder
Designated Green Path builders test a minimum of 75% of their newly built homes annually and attend professional development events. Minnesota Green Path helps homeowners understand the energy efficiency of their home and gives them the confidence that comes with independent, third-party testing.
Minnesota’s Green Path is the leading energy efficiency and green building program for the residential construction industry in Minnesota. Created by Housing First Minnesota in 2011, the program has provided Home Performance Reports for more than 36,000 newly built homes highlighting RESNET’s HERS (Home Energy Rating System) index and air exchange rate. Minnesota’s average HERS # is 50 … which is the lowest (#1) among states that energy test more than 1,000 homes.
