2016 Built Green WaterSense Incentive

We are pleased to share that Built Green is continuing its partnership with the Cascade Water Alliance to offer a new incentive for green building certification: the WaterSense New Homes Incentive Program. Builders that achieve this certification will receive a rebate of $1,000 per unit. In 2016, we are expanding the offering to include multi-family buildings as well as single-family!

How does this incentive work? WaterSense is a national program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that promotes water efficiency and enhances the market for water-friendly programs, products, and practices. Cascade Water Alliance is a WaterSense partner, offering rebates under the program. Cascade Water Alliance is offering an incentive for builders who combine Built Green and WaterSense certifications. Homes in Cascade Water Alliance's territory that achieve both the WaterSense New Homes requirements and Built Green 3-Star or higher certification will be eligible to apply for a $1,000 rebate. Built Green will assist with this process.

We are very excited about partnering with the Cascade Water Alliance on this program, which will benefit builders, our water supply, and the overall environment alike!Interested in learning more?
