The last couple years have been big for Meritage.
We became the first U.S. home builder to have 100 percent of its homes certified by the EPA’s Energy Star program. In July 2010, we opened the first community to boast nothing but homes with less than 40 HERS. And since then, we’ve opened another 30 communities with equivalent energy scores, communities that exceed the Department of Energy’s stretch goal for energy efficiency for 2030.
