Creating public awareness of the features and benefits of a LEED project is an integral part of the LEED for Homes process. It invites the public to learn more about the residential green building movement and possibly to make positive changes in their homes or workplaces.
In the Awareness & Education category, we will achieve 1 point for Public Awareness by choosing to complete at least 3 out of the 4 options:
- Publish a website that provides detailed information about features and benefits of a LEED home. (Check out the Neuhaus blog for updates!)
- Display LEED for Homes signage. (Check out the sign below – Wave Crest is AGB’s parent company)
- Generate a newspaper article for LEED for Homes (Here is one written in the Encinitas Patch, but we may create another closer to final)
- Hold a public open house or participate in a green building exhibition or tour (We will see!)
Here is our LEED for Homes signage:
