Green Building and Remodeling
If you want to go green, look first to our energy testing and green certification program for new and remodeled homes, Minnesota’s Green Path. This green program provides each home owner with a Home Performance Report (HPR) detailing the energy saving features included in their home, plus a graphic representation of exactly where the home is located on the “green path” continuum.
At the core of MN Green Path is the Home Energy Rating System Index or HERS Index. This easy-to-understand number helps you compare the expected energy use between homes. Learn more about the HERS Index online here. Check out the video here.
