Changes to Solar Panels and other Green fields are going into effect on 08/29!

Solar panels will now have a third-party owned option to identify panels that are owned by a third party (i.e. utility company) and will be provided as part of the service agreement with the homeowner. You will also now be able to enter a decimal in to the kW field. As most system output does not use whole numbers, this will provide the most accurate numbers for someone looking to purchase the home.

We will also be adding some additions to the heating and cooling groups to include ENERGY STAR options for equipment. The plumbing group will add WaterSense fields and four new options will be added to the construction group. These will all focus on the green features in a listing. Lastly, the National Green Building Standard (NGBS) has replaced NAHB Green Program.
