The ENERGY STAR Certified New Homes Market Indices for States compares the number of site built, single family ENERGY STAR certified new homes to the number of new privately owned one unit homes permitted in each state and the District of Columbia, adjusted for housing completions. Each state's index is a measurement of ENERGY STAR's presence in the site-built, single-family new homes market for that state. It does not measure other energy efficiency efforts within the state. The map and tables below provide a breakdown of the market index for each state and the District of Columbia. ENERGY STAR, in partnership with stakeholders, achieved a national market presence in the new homes sector of 16 percent in 2012.
More than 101,000 new homes earned the ENERGY STAR in 2012, including nearly 81,000 site built, single family homes¹. This is equivalent to:
Eliminating the emissions from more than 36,000 vehicles each year
Saving more than 150 million pounds of coal each year
Planting and growing nearly 4.5 million coniferous trees for 10 years
Saving home owners more than $32 million annually on their utility bills
