Energy Efficient Technology and Environmentally-Responsible Construction Projects

Conscientious homeowners are purchasing products that will make their homes greener by reducing their carbon footprint. Elaborating on this, Zillow released a report listing the top 100 cities possessing the greatest number of homes featuring energy-efficient technology.

The results were surprising, especially for citizens in five California cities.

Despite topping the list in which residents installed some form of energy-efficient technology on their homes, these same locations featured larger carbon footprints relative to cities (primarily found on the East Coast) that didn’t feature such technology.

At 24%, San Jose topped the list with the highest percentage of home listings featuring energy-efficient technology. Marring this achievement is the fact they have the fifth largest carbon footprint in the country at 53.4 tons/year. Conversely, Buffalo, NY has but a scant 3% of its home listings possessing energy-efficient technology, but they have the smallest carbon footprint in the nation at just 33.5 tons/year.
