Growth of HERS Rated Homes

HERS rated homes reduce 1 million tons of carbon production every year, and that number grows as more net positive homes from builders like Sutter Homes are constructed.

Sutter Homes & the HERS Score

Sutter Homes are net positive, and often times have a below-zero rating on the HERS index.

When a home rates below zero on the HERS index, it means that the home produces enough energy to cover all of the utility bills and has electricity leftover. This can be used to charge your electric car, mobile devices, power tools, or receiving a check back from your electric provider as you put your extra energy back into the system.
