TC Legend Homes Wins National Award for Its Bellingham Powerhouse

by | Aug 18, 2015

The U.S. Department of Energy recently announced that TC Legend Homes was chosen from builders across the nation to win a Housing Innovation Award for our Bellingham Power House. 

The Housing Innovation Awards recognize the very best in innovation on the path to zero energy ready homes. Our entry goes way beyond zero-energy-ready by not only producing enough solar electricity to meet the home’s needs but generates enough of a surplus to power the owners’ two electric cars.

DOE Zero Energy Ready Home (ZERH) Housing Innovation Award Winners are selected for each of four categories: custom, production, multifamily, and affordable homes. One DOE ZERH Grand Housing Innovation Award Winner will be announced from among the winners in each of these categories at the 2015 Housing Innovation Awards Ceremony held on October 6, 2015, at the EEBA Excellence in Building Conference & Expo in Denver, Colorado. We were thrilled to be chosen as a Grand Winner in 2014, and our fingers are crossed to win this distinction again this year.
