Green Home Choice is a free, voluntary green home certification program sponsored by Arlington County.  The homes are awarded points for being energy and resource efficient, sustainable, and for providing a healthy living environment.  In addition to certificates, program participants are offered front-of-the-line architectural plan review, lawn signs, recognition by the County Board in an annual reception, media attention, and builder and designer recognition on this website.
