Welcome to the North Carolina Energy Efficiency Alliance!

The North Carolina Energy Efficiency Alliance (NCEEA) was established in 2010 as a state-funded non-profit organization with the goal of supporting energy efficient and third party certified construction in NC. The NCEEA is dedicated to educating all the various stakeholders in the home building industry about the benefits of constructing energy efficient homes and buildings.

Alliance members include home energy raters, home builders and renovators, commercial contractors, architects, engineers, utility providers, real estate brokers, appraisers, and mortgage lenders. The NCEEA strives to address market barriers in the building industry that will ultimately help the consumers and contractors benefit from a healthier, more comfortable home and better built structures.

Chuck at WSRAR

Chuck Perry, Program Director of the NCEEA, presented to the Winston Salem Regional Association of REALTORS. Here's what they had to say:

"The Winston Salem Regional Association of REALTORS® recently hosted the Green Guidelines & Certifications for Homes Seminar by Chuck Perry. Chuck’s presentation on green features was exceptionally informative for our members. Those in attendance included brokers, appraisers, lenders and builders and all gave us excellent feedback about the event. Chuck also met with the CEO of our regional MLS, along with local WSRAR leadership, and gave us helpful direction on green features as they relate to the MLS."


Pre-Construction Best Practices for ENERGY STAR v3 New Homes

The NCEEA has created a video series to demonstrate the pre-construction best practices that allow a builders, raters, and trade contractors to successfully participate in an ENERGY STAR version 3 new home build. Eight steps are outlined in a timeline format, with additional information provided between the videos that may be used as a checklist for each build.
