Propane Helps Builders Reach Green Building Standards

Construction professionals who use propane can earn more than 100 points toward the National Green Building Standard™.

Whether you're a big builder or a developer or focus on custom homes, propane can help you design, build, and market properties that attract home buyers. Construction professionals who use propane can earn more than 100 points toward the National Green Building Standard™. The Green Building Guidelines incorporate environmental considerations into every phase of the home building process, from lot design and preparation to construction to homeowner education. 

The use of propane earns builders and remodelers high points in the categories of indoor environmental quality and resource, energy, and water efficiency. By building with propane, in fact, your project can be halfway to bronze. You can learn more about the Green Building Guidelines from the National Association of Home Builders green Web site, www.nahbgreen.org.


The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) issued a report this week which determines that a proposed $7,000 state income tax credit for home buyers will generate enough revenue for New York State to offset any loss of proceeds and also induce many more prospective buyers to purchase homes this year than would otherwise have been the case.

The report also finds that the home buying activity created by the $7,000 tax credit will generate fees for real estate agents, income for the professionals who provide services at closing, and additional spending on items such as home appliances and furnishings, and this activity will generate income, sales, and other tax revenue for the New York State government. Increased home buying means that vacant units for sale on the market will be absorbed more quickly and allow production of new housing to recover from its current depressed condition to more normal levels.
