Recognition and Awards

EPA highlights partners’ achievements in building, rating, sponsoring, and marketing ENERGY STAR certified new homes through its Partner Locator and national awards.

Partner Locator

The Partner Locator provides a complete list of all active ENERGY STAR partners who are building, verifying, and promoting certified homes. To remain active and on this Web-based list, partners must have at least one new home qualify as ENERGY STAR within an ongoing 12-month period.

EPA has set this minimum requirement to ensure that when consumers consult EPA’s resources, they will find partners who are actively building and selling ENERGY STAR certified new homes. In addition to listing active partners, EPA will provide a link from the Partner Locator to partners’ Web sites if they meet the eligibility requirements.

Additional Partner Locator Recognition

Builder 100% Commitment Option

EPA offers special recognition to builders that commit to building 100% of their homes to be ENERGY STAR certified. Eligible builders can make the 100% commitment by updating their partner information in their My ENERGY STAR Account (MESA). This commitment is denoted with a special 100% icon 100% and a priority listing on the ENERGY STAR Partner Locator.

Builders can track the number of ENERGY STAR certified homes reported to EPA by their Rater or Rating Provider by visiting MESA.
