The 2022 NGBS Partner of Excellence List is Out!

Home Innovation Research Labs has released its 2022 Partners of Excellence. Southern Energy Management (SEM) is excited to recognize our team members and partners who made the list!

Each year, Home Innovation Labs awards NGBS Green Partners who demonstrate “outstanding contributions to advancing green building in their communities and commitment to voluntary, market-driven, third-party certification of high-performance homes” with this honor. Representing both single and multi-family energy rating and sustainability services, working with NGBS helps ensure more homes are certified as high-performance, reducing the world’s carbon output and saving real money at the same time.
