This year’s judging of our annual Green Home of the Year awards took place at The Lodge on the Desert, in Tucson, Arizona. Judges looked at many eco-friendly aspects of each home, including HERS ratings and/or green certification. Our staff suggested, however, that they not penalize an entry without certification—as long as it clearly demonstrated excellent performance.
