The DOE Housing Innovation Awards recognize nation’s top builders on the path to Zero Energy Ready Homes.

The US Department of Energy has announced that TC Legend Homes has been awarded a 2016 Housing Innovation Award in the Custom category. Grand Winners in each category will be announced at the 2016 Housing Innovation Awards Ceremony, Wednesday, September 27, at the EEBA Excellence in Building Conference, in Dallas, Texas.  

“Housing Innovation Award winners such as TC Legend Homes are leading a major housing industry transformation to zero energy ready homes. This level of performance is the home of the future because it improves the way Americans live by substantially reducing or eliminating utility bills, ensuring engineered comfort way beyond traditional homes, protecting health with a comprehensive package of indoor air quality measures, and helping maximize the largest investment of a lifetime,” said Sam Rashkin, Chief Architect at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Building Technologies Office.

“These winners are leading the movement to Zero Energy Ready Homes that provide better places for Americans to live, stronger communities, and a more economically and environmentally resilient nation,” said Rashkin.
