|Green Home Choice (GHC) is teaming up with the StormwaterWise Landscapes Program. Funds are available for certain GHC projects that will incorporate cisterns or green roofs.|
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. Check out recent certified projects below.
