In a significant achievement, Pearl Homes, renowned for its dedication to net positive, green building, proudly announces that its Hunters Point Pearl Homes and Marina project has been distinguished with a coveted Top project of the Year Award in the Environment+Energy Leader Awards program. This year marks a milestone as the program divides accolades into six innovative categories, tailoring recognition to specific sustainability and energy management excellence sectors.

Award-Winning Innovation

The Hunters Point Pearl Homes and Marina community stands out for its exceptional contribution in energy innovation, setting a benchmark for innovation and sustainability in its category. This recognition underscores Pearl Homes’ commitment to pushing the boundaries of environmental and energy management.

Hunters Point is the first and only Net Zero single-family home community in the United States, as recognized by the USGBC. It is one of two LEED Zero housing projects in the entire world. The homes at Hunters Point score a 0 on the Carbon Rating index, indicating that the homes are Zero Carbon. The homes at Hunters Point score a -11 on the HERS Rating index, indicating that these homes are actually net positive. Each home produces an average of about 35% more energy than it can consume. Our homes have the capability to run independently without any help from a state-powered electrical grid. Based on a study conducted with Florida Solar Energy Center, these homes can generate a net positive percentage between 20% to 57%, meaning each home exported 8,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) back to the grid. In context, 8,000 kWh can power an average home’s total electricity use for 266 days. 

A Testament to Excellence

The distinction of Hunters Point Pearl Homes and Marina by Environment+Energy Leader signifies a remarkable achievement in the field. Jessica Hunt, Co-President of E+E Leader, expresses her admiration for this year’s winners: “The introduction of six distinct categories in this year’s awards program not only celebrates the breadth of innovation within the industry but also highlights the specific areas where companies are truly making an impact. A win is a testament to these companies’ outstanding efforts and leadership in driving forward the sustainability agenda.”
