Buy Green

Certified Green Building LogoThe Township is making it easier for you to find an energy efficient home.

Energy savings don’t have to stop with your washer or fridge. Purchasing a green home can save money on your utility bills, and can increase your home’s resale value. Green homes are also healthier and more comfortable for you and your family, with less draft, cleaner air, and better temperature management.

Shop wisely for your new home. Look for an EnerGuide rating  to help you buy green. Homes built or renovated to be energy efficient through successful completion of the Township’s program are readily visible throughout the community to consumers, and establish instant recognition and credibility as being energy efficient.
