Providence Homes recently received the 2017 ENERGY STAR® Certified Market Leader Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for an unprecedented 8th year in a row (2010-2017). This award recognizes outstanding partners who have made important contributions to energy–efficient construction and environmental protection by building or verifying an outstanding number of ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes during the previous year.

What does this award really mean?

In 2017, throughout the Jacksonville area, 173 families chose Providence Homes, saving themselves money and energy. According to ENERGY STAR®, the total estimated savings on energy costs was $137,535.00 or $795.00 per household. The environmental equivalent of:

  • Eliminating the emissions from 62 passenger vehicles
  • Saving an incredible 312,131 lbs. of coal
  • Reducing the consumption of 680 barrels of oil
  • 102 tons of waste recycled instead of landfilled

Year after year, our commitment to build ENERGY STAR® Certified Homes ensures we are building quality homes far beyond the minimum level of oversight provided by the local building standards. By integrating proven building science technologies coupled with stringent third-party inspections and testing as required by ENRERGY STAR® we are confident our homes will be cleaner, more efficient, more comfortable and more durable. And because our homes are built to exceed these standards they will be more affordable and sustainable for the life of the home.
