Coming Soon: New Rater Resource
In anticipation of the launch of GreenPoint Rated Version 6.0, the GPR staff will be adding short "how to" video tutorials to the Rater Resource page throughout the first quarter of 2014.

With a certification score of 231 points, the ABC Green Home 2.0 will be used to educate and train builders, students, industry groups, and thousands of visitors and be donated to a wounded U.S. veteran.
With a bulk of its points coming from the Energy category, the home achieved 45% better than code. It was recently on display at the U.S. DOE Solar Decathlon this past October at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine, CA.
