Great Green Home | Port Hadlock by Clifton View Homes

Builder Ted Clifton, who constructs custom zero energy homes on Whidbey Island in western Washington state, has two homes recognized with U.S. Department of Energy Housing Innovation Awards. While the houses are unique, they share an important common denominator, both have been certified to DOE’s Zero Energy Ready Home program. Clifton’s two winning homes, one located on Marine Drive in Coupeville on Whidbey Island and one located in nearby Port Hadlock, achieved Home Energy Rating System (HERS) scores of 39 and 38 without solar photovoltaics or -12 and -9, respectively, when solar systems were added.
