Buildings eat up 40 percent of the energy America uses. When buildings use less energy, everybody wins.

Energy efficient building codes ensure efficiency happens on a grand scale. These codes:

  • Save homeowners money on their utility bills while resulting in a higher-quality, more comfortable home with better resale value
  • Boost the housing market and the wider economy
  • Help stabilize energy costs for homeowners, businesses, and manufacturers
  • Reduce dependence on imported energy from other states and nations, keep more money circulating locally, and ease American dependence on less-than-friendly governments
  • Reduce demand for electricity, lessening the need for expensive new electric-generation facilities and easing pressure on the grid
  • Cut greenhouse gas emissions in one of the most cost-effective ways possible
  • Ease air pollution as less energy from dirty, outdated power plants is needed
