Important Information on the Draft Materials
  • Version 6.0 represents significant updates that seek to create greater alignment and consistency across the four GreenPoint Rated systems. Updates include revised measure naming, point allocation, program prerequisites, measure criteria and verification requirements.
  • The Executive Summary includes a synopsis of measures that have been revised as well as a side-by-side comparison between the current and future checklists.
  • In an effort to streamline the GreenPoint Rated process, we've combined New Home and Existing Home into two manuals: New Home Single Family + New Home Multifamily; Existing Home Single Family + Existing Home Multifamily.

Why Are We Updating GreenPoint Rated?

GreenPoint Rated has emerged as the most trusted home rating system in California, with more than 20,000 certified units and another 27,000 projects in the pipeline. Now that the State of California has updated the California Codes and Regulations along with Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24, Part 6) with stronger minimum standards, GreenPointed Rated is being updated in tandem. With Version 6.0, GreenPoint Rated will continue to reflect the leading edge of green building practices and certify buildings that go above and beyond the CALGreen code.
