Builder Program is.

Imperial Irrigation District Energy’s demand-side manager said the program — the first solid attempt to bring solar energy to the Imperial Valley — is “a win-win situation” for energy companies and consumers alike.

“The California Green Builder Program is a program to promote energy efficiency and green building in residential new construction,” Ambach said.

Partnered with the Building Industry Association, Ambach said the green buildings — which would be powered by solar panels — promoted by the IID will be a lesson in conservation in every aspect of the building and operational stages of new homes.

The green buildings are being promoted as energy efficient homes that conserve water and wood, and lower the amount of construction waste piled up during the building process.

The IID will even start offering incentives to offset the costs of converting a home to a renewable energy source such as solar by providing up to 80 percent of the costs in lower electricity bills.

Folks who buy a new home that has already been converted into a green building will automatically have lower electricity and water bills due to the energy efficiency and water conservation elements of the home, making the Green Builder Program a solid idea for Valley residents.

“A California Green Builder home is a good thing from an energy perspective, and the homeowner will see less costs going to utility bills,” Ambach said.“It saves energy, and it’s good for the Valley.”
