Every year the U.S. Green Building Council recognizes the top projects, developers and home builders participating in its LEED program. “Healthy, high performing residential projects don’t have to cost more, and that is evidenced in many of this year’s winning projects” said Nate Kredich, Vice President, Residential Market Development, USGBC, in a press release. “LEED builders continue to push the envelope in areas of innovation and affordability, and so we tip our hats to the dedicated leaders represented in this year’s winners circle.” Check out this year’s 2011 LEED for Homes award recipients.

GO Home Maine 

2011 LEED Project of the Year: The GO Home, Belfast, Maine  

With a small but smart footprint of 1,500 square feet, the three-bedroom LEED Platinum GO Home uses minimal energy and was built at construction costs comparable to a building a standard home. As a net zero and passive house, The GO Home was designed to bring design and energy performance in line with affordability, and is designed to slash energy usage by 90 percent. The project will be replicated across a 36-home community in Maine.
