"The level of performance we saw from our awardees underscores the importance of building high-efficiency homes of the future. These homes provide Americans with the ability to save money through reduced or eliminated utility bills, engineered comfort, comprehensive health protection, and overall peace-of-mind they are making a smart investment."
