The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) has announced its annual LEED for Homes Awards, which recognizes projects, developers and home builders who have “demonstrated leadership in the residential building marketplace.”

The awards will be presented today during the Residential Summit, part of the 2011 Greenbuild International Conference & Expo currently underway in Toronto.

The Project of the Year was awarded to The GO Home in Belfast, Maine, with was built by GO Logic. At a scant 1,500 square feet, the small footprint home is a three-bedroom, LEED Platinum primary residence that uses minimal energy — in fact it is both a net zero and passive home, reducing energy usage by about 90 percent.


Congrats to all the winners!
