– First LEED Platinum Factory-Built Home in New York
– First LEED Platinum Home of Any Type in New York Designed Without Need for Renewable Energy Sources
For the second time this year, New World Home has achieved a historic milestone in green housing by obtaining LEED(R) for Homes Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
The company has created the first factory-built home in New York State to earn LEED Platinum certification, as well as the first home of any type in New York to earn the prestigious Platinum rating without the need for any costly renewable energy sources, such as solar panels, wind turbines or geothermal systems. The home is one of only two to ever obtain LEED Platinum certification in New York. The New World Home project, located in Youngsville, Sullivan County, also earned ENERGY STAR(R) certification.
“Earlier in the year, we attained LEED Platinum certification for one of our homes in Atlanta, and we are extremely excited to replicate that achievement here in New York,” says Mark Jupiter, Co-Founder and President of the Product Division for New World Home. “It reinforces our ability to deliver quality green homes that are so efficient at a core level that they don’t require the use of renewable energy sources.
