"The industry's best and the brightest will have a chance to show how their green home building efforts have true market value for consumers and a positive impact on the environment," said Eric S. Borsting, chairman of the 2005 NAHB National Green Building Conference and NAHB's Energy Subcommittee. "Winners of these awards are an inspiration to those in the growing green building movement, which has constructed more than 40,000 resource-efficient, environmentally sensitive homes since the 1970s."

Past award recipients have included Southface Energy Institute, a nonprofit association that has certified more than 1,000 green homes through its EarthCraft House Program, and Pardee Homes, a production home builder committed to Energy Star requirements as a minimum energy-efficiency standard for all its new homes.
