MINNESOTA’S GREEN PATH

Minnesota’s Green Path is the leading energy efficiency and green building program for the residential construction industry in Minnesota. Created by BATC-Housing First Minnesota in 2011, the program has provided Home Performance Reports to more than 15,000 newly built homes highlighting RESNET’s Home Energy Rating System (HERS) score and air exchange rate.

From the outset, the goal has been to help builders and their homeowners look at energy and green building in a different, more affordable way. With this independent energy testing and a consistent HERS index, prospective home buyers have a valuable tool that helps them understand expected energy usage in the homes they are considering.

In addition to the HPRs provided with each tested home, Green Path has been successful in securing a HERS field in the NorthStar MLS database, which is used by thousands of REALTORS throughout MN.

The base level of Minnesota’s Green Path is a RESNET tested home. Additionally, the program offers advanced and master levels of Green Path certification for those builders and homeowners seeking even more resource management.
