Stitt Energy Systems Becomes First Arkansas Builder to Commit to Having All Homes Energy Rated and Marketing the HERS Index

June 29th, 2011 - Posted by RESNET under Hot News

Stitt Energy Systems, a builder based in Rogers, Arkansas is committing to have all of their homes rated and marketing their homes’ HERS Index.

Stitt Energy Systems and RESNET have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work together in promoting improved home energy performance and home energy ratings of new homes.

The intent of the MOU is to raise consumers knowledge of new home energy performance by using RESNET’s HERS Index. This will clearly differentiate homes built by Stitt Energy Systems and put competitive pressure on the new home industry in the Arkansas and Missouri markets to follow suit. It is expected that this agreement will serve as a model to other local and regional builders that would have positive outcomes for consumers, RESNET and the new home industry.

Stitt Energy Systems builds homes in Arkansas and Missouri. The company committed itself to build all their homes to earn the ENERGY STAR Homes label. It is the winner of 19 NAHB Research Center’s EnergyValue Housing Awards including the Builder of the Year and People’s Choice Awards. The Arkansas company was also the winner of the NAHB Green Building Award in 2007. The company’s president Orlo Stitt serves on the RESNET Board of Directors.

RESNET is interested in entering into similar agreements with other regional and local builders. Energy raters who have builder clients who would be interested in entering into an agreement with RESNET should contact Steve Baden at sbaden@resnet.us
