The Virginia Energy Efficiency Council (VAEEC) honored a Better Buildings Residential Network member as one of the winners of the first-ever Virginia Energy Efficiency Awards. The awards showcase how energy efficiency champions across the state are helping homeowners, businesses, schools, and the government save money on energy costs while reducing energy use and stimulating the economy.

Residential Network member Richmond Region Energy Alliance received second place in the residential category, along with project partners Bain-Waring Home Energy Remodeling and RIC Design Build. The team improved the energy efficiency of an 840-square-foot row home while maintaining its original aesthetic. They used advanced framing and insulation techniques, thorough air sealing, efficient systems, and a 3-kilowatt solar array. After upgrades, the home is projected to achieve an 80% reduction in total energy consumption. Learn more about the project and other winners.
