South Carolina Green Certification Program Hits 3000 Homes Milestone

Feb. 9, 2017

The Building Industry of Central South Carolina’s Certified High Performance (CHiP) Home Program hit a milestone in January when it certified the 3,000th home to meet its requirements.

The CHiP Home Program is a locally operated new home certification program run through the BIA’s High Performance Building Council. It is based on the ICC 700-2012 National Green Building Standard (NGBS). CHiP-certified homes must receive an independent HERS Index Rating and meet NGBS requirements.

All the 3,000 CHiP-certified homes have reached specific thresholds in resource, energy and water efficiency; indoor air quality; lot development and home owner education, operation and maintenance.

“We are lucky to have knowledgeable and passionate members when it comes to building science and high-performance homes,” said High Performance Building Council Chairwoman Jenny Nettles in a press release. “Couple that with the strength and versatility of the National Green Building Standard and you’ve got a recipe for success.”
