Living in Green Built, Energy Efficient Homes

The day is coming soon when all new homes in Oregon and Washington will be green built and green certified. Sustainable (or “green”) homes have features that lower their operating costs and improve their indoor air. They also are more environmentally friendly because they make better use of resources and are less polluting.

Persimmon Development Group is proud to be a green builder, and built 15 ENERGY STAR qualified homes in 2008. This is equivalent to:

  • Eliminating the emissions from 7.35 vehicles
  • Saving 44,460 lbs of coal
  • Planting 12.15 acres of trees
  • Saving homeowners $6,705 on their utility bills

Did you know that just one ENERGY STAR® qualified new home can keep 4,500 pounds of greenhouse gases out of our air each year?

We are proud to offer new homes that have earned the ENERGY STAR® label.

ENERGY STAR qualified homes are designed, built and performance tested to be at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to code in Oregon.

Did you know that materials used in standard new carpets and cabinetry can release pollutants in your new home for several months that are 3 to 5 times more toxic than outdoor air?

We use low VOC paint and materials to ensure that the air inside your home is cleaner.
