Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville

Nashville, Tennessee

Partner of the Year - Sustained Excellence - New Home Builder and Affordable Housing


Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville, an affordable homebuilder and volunteer organization, has built more than 550 ENERGY STAR certified homes since joining the program, saving $14 million in energy usage for their homeowners. Key 2020 accomplishments include:

  • Creating new videos that explain ENERGY STAR building practices and the benefits of ENERGY STAR certification to augment on-site training, as volunteer and homeowner personal contact was limited during the 2020 pandemic.
  • Communicating to all partners, including future homeowners, volunteer corps, corporate and faith sponsor groups, subcontractors, and board members about what it means to be a 100% ENERGY STAR certified builder.
  • Promoting ENERGY STAR certification in all collateral materials, including website, company letterhead, brochures, annual reports, build signs, social media, press, and events.
In 2020 alone, ENERGY STAR and its partners helped Americans avoid more than $40 Billion in energy costs
