Daily Real Estate News  |  December 7, 2009  |   More Homes Claim 'Green' Label
Despite the slump in new construction, more than 75,000 homes with the Energy Star designation have been completed in 2009.

The Energy Star label means a home is at least 20 percent more energy-efficient than other new properties.

One of the builders taking advantage of the increasing interest in green living is Pulte Homes, which is building 185 homes in Las Vegas with solar-paneled roofs and certification by the U.S. Green Building Council. “Consumer acceptance has been outstanding,” says Walter Cuculic, director of strategic market for the builder.
