Sustainable building successes

As Habitat for Humanity builds for the benefit of our homeowners and our environment, a primary goal is to provide healthy living conditions and reduce monthly and life-cycle costs. These images from all across the United States share some of the innovative ways that Habitat works to build simple, decent, energy-efficient homes.

Kitsap County, Wash.

Habitat Kitsap County is partnering with Community Solar Solutions to create the “Go Solar South Kitsap” campaign. The campaign aims to increase the amount of solar energy used in the area, by offering free educational workshops, site assessments, and special pricing and financing. The more local residents who go solar during the campaign, the more solar arrays will be made available to Habitat homeowners.
