The North Carolina Building Performance Association (NCBPA) announced the release of its third annual energy efficient, green and high-performance home and building report, "2017 North Carolina Energy Efficient, Green and High Performance Home and Building Inventory Report". The report analyzed 34,152 high performance homes and buildings being built or retrofitted in North Carolina in 2016. NCBPA reports that "working alongside research partner National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the analysis found an average 9.5% premium for high performance homes sold in the three metro markets combined over the two-year period."
The study found that homes with HERS Index Scores between 40 and 89 commanded a price of between $85.89 and $162.52 per square foot.
Each year, the report presents an analysis of data from certification and rating programs used to measure homes and buildings for energy efficient, green and high-performance features. According to NCBPA, the 2017 report includes what is believed to be the most comprehensive high-performance home sale price analysis performed to date. The analysis compares the prices of 3,908 high performance homes sold in North Carolina's Charlotte, Triad and Triangle housing markets between 2015 and 2016 to all other home sales.
Using data provided by RESNET, the data for the study included 15,568 homes that received HERS ratings and issued a HERS Index Scores in 2016. Here is a summary of the analysis of HERS rated homes:
