GREEN ENERGY HOMES Realtor designation comes through the National Association of Realtors. In Tucson, Arizona Green energy homes and GREEN resources are an important focus of my Real Estate Practice. I can help you with your plans or questions about “Green Resources” in Tucson or at least becoming MORE GREEN with your next move. The Tucson Association of Realtors has added green energy homes features to the MLS search engine thus allowing Tucson Realtors to search for sustainable, energy saving criteria. I can refer you to Tucson builders or remodeling contractors who also specialize in Tucson green energy homes and sustainable materials. I am including below some resource links that will guide you to some of these companies.

Green Energy Homes Green Energy Homes vary greatly in the features they include. In general, many homes will have only certain green energy homes features that contribute to green, sustainable living. Subdivisions such as Civano, Armory Park del Sol are known for homes with many green features. You may also work directly with a custom builder who specializes in green build.
Some of the green energy homes feature builders might include for you are; recycled materials, low VOC paint, extra insulation, solar hot water and solar heating systems, solar swimming pool heaters. Passive solar is also popular in the Arizona desert and starts with south facing construction. Low E windows and a high seer air-conditioning unit.
