It has been our pleasure to help guide and certify the ABC Green Home 3.0 in so many code programs. This home helps to serve as an example to the new residential construction promoting the advancement of better building practices and helping by providing a tangible example with a great purpose of donating the home to a veteran. Certified by EnergySTAR, Watersense, IndoorAirPlus, and DOE Zero Net Energy, these programs are especially important to California, including homes like the ABC Green Home 3.0, help leads the way in carbon reduction and more sustainable building practices nationally with their Title 24 commitment and drive to Net Zero Homes by 2020.
