With green homes expected to gain more market share of all home construction, it’s reasonable to expect that the USGBC will play a huge role in the greening of our national housing stock. The USGBC certified the first 1,000 homes in 31 months; 1,001 – 5,000 in 18 months; 5,001 – 10,000 in 12 months; and 10,001 – 20,000 in 13 months, according to the USGBC . So the trajectory is definitely in the direction of more and faster (and, perhaps, measurably greener, too, as the system evolves). Credit: The Shoebox House /LEED Platinum, © Laurie Allegretti.
