The National Association of Home Builders recently presented its National Green Development of the Year Award to non-profit Thistle’s Blue Vista green and affordable new home development in Longmont, Colorado.

According to Denver.YourHub.com, “One hundred of the 198 homes in the community will be permanently affordable to income-qualified working families, senior citizens, and people with disabilities. These buyers also contribute self-help hours to finish their homes.”

Green features include well-insulated, air-tight construction; highly efficient mechanical systems; Energy Star rated windows and appliances; and energy-conserving lighting. The energy efficient homes will save homeowners $22,000 in energy bills over the life of each home.
