To date, they have built four homes that qualify for the EnergyStar label and plan to make all their future homes EnergyStar qualified. The company is also certified under several other green building programs including Jackson EMC “Right Choiceâ€, Georgia Power EnergyStar, and the U.S. Dept. of Energy “Builders Challenge Programâ€.
