EnerQuality Reaches 75,000 Homes Labeled Milestone

In February, EnerQuality - the #1 certifier of energy efficient homes in the country - reached a new milestone: labeling its 75,000th ENERGY STAR home.
Since the modest start of just 96 labeled homes in 2006, EnerQuality now labels more than 5,000 homes each year.  EQ builders range from the large - with developments of more than 100+ homes per - to small custom firms building just one or two homes each year. 
"ENERGY STAR has been the most effective tool in the government's toolbox to influence the marketplace towards greater energy efficiency and less carbon," Corey McBurney, president of EnerQuality said.
