Created by the WNC Green Building Council, Green Gauge is a new innovative home assessment tool that will help residents from across North Carolina save money, reduce energy usage and live in homes that are healthier for themselves and the environment. Green Gauge uses a variety of criteria, such as energy and water usage, building material sustainability, and indoor air quality in order to determine how "green" a home is. This rating is a perfect comparison tool for buyers and sellers of green homes or homeowners and renters looking for recommendations on how to make their home greener. For more information about the Green Gauge program, visit wncgbc.org/greengauge, or call the WNC Green Building Council at 828.254.1995.
