Green Energy certifications could do so much more
There are many choices when labeling your building project as energy and water efficient.  Building owners use these labels to market units for rent or sale, to show funders they are committed to green buildings, to satisfy requirements for Low Income Tax Credits (LIHTC), comply with zoning in some locations, or to secure funds through incentive programs.  These labels or certifications have real benefits but could do so much more to inform the world of affordable housing.
