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 an average national market presence in the new homes sector of 26 percent in 2011.
More than 130,000 new homes earned the ENERGY STAR in 2011, including nearly 106,000 site built, single family homes¹. This is equivalent to:
Eliminating the emissions from nearly 52,000 vehicles
Saving nearly 314 million pounds of coal
Planting nearly 86,000 acres of trees
Saving home owners more than $47 million on their utility bills
