ODL supports the US Department of Energy's Builders Challenge
ODL is proud to partner with the U.S. Department of Energy in support of the Builders Challenge. The DOE has challenged the homebuilding industry to build 220,000 high performance homes by 2012. Homes that qualify for the Builders Challenge must achieve a 70 or better on the EnergySmart Home Scale (E-Scale), meaning that they will use at least 30% less energy than a typical new home built to code. Through industry partnerships and existing programs, the Builders Challenge promotes the use of market-tested and cost-effective energy strategies. DOE's goal is that by 2030, new home buyers will have the option to buy a cost-effective, net-zero energy home anywhere in the United States.
