GLRPPR Sector Resource: Minnesota GreenStar Give Homeowners a Guide to a Green Home

Title:
Minnesota GreenStar Give Homeowners a Guide to a Green Home

Abstract:
Homes consume and waste a lot of energy -- as any Minnesotan who has paid a heating bill the past few winters is acutely aware. But homeowners can reduce their demand on the environment by building "green." A coalition of builders, remodelers and environmentalists introduced a new voluntary home certification program called Minnesota GreenStar on Wednesday [8/22/07]. They say the program's home checklist makes "going green" much easier. This report for Minnesota Public Radio by Lorna Benson discusses this certification program and the process of remodeling a home in St. Louis Park, MN following the Minnesota GreenStar guidelines.
