GreenPoint Rated Case Studies
Learn how other investors and building owners are benefitting from energy upgrades and the GreenPoint Rated label.
The American Green Home
The investor who purchased this home calculated that he could make cost effective retrofits and upgrades by taking advantage of the Energy Upgrade California in Los Angeles County rebate program and other incentives.
These retrofits would lower the overall cost of homeownership and increase the home's overall value while creating a healthier home that saves more energy, water, and other natural resources.

An Urban Green Habitat
The Habitat's GreenPoint Rated label has had a positive impact on the owner's bottom line. The comfortable living environment and low energy bills appeal to residents, which has led to longer tenancies and less turnover. The green features are also a significant selling point for the building.
