“The hidden harmony is better than the obvious.”



Earlier this year RESNET was approved as a Home Certification Organization (HCO) for the California ENERGY STAR Homes Program by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).


What are the roots of this partnership with CalCERTS?


Who will benefit from this harmony?


What benefits will evolve for the parties involved?

We are joined today by David Choo, Director, Compliance at CalCERTS and Laurel Elam, Director of Quality Assurance and Standards at RESNET to get the details behind the fact that RESNET HERS index ratings are soon to be recognized in California.


We will learn why RESNET chose to do a pilot in California, what this means to CalCERTS and how it works.


Amongst several other topics of discussion, David will give us insights into the demand for this program and Laurel will discuss what an HCO is as well as how it relates to RESNET.


This episode will be of special interest to national production builders that build in California.
