Priority Energy and StreetScape Development Announce Their Next Partnership: 27 Highly Energy Efficient Homes Built to DOE Builders Challenge Level of Excellence

Priority Energy will provide energy efficiency products and services to 27 new homes at Floral Avenue in Skokie, IL. These homes will meet Builders Challenge national program requirements for superior indoor air quality, minimal air and moisture leakage, durability and ultra-low utility costs.
Skokie, IL (PRWEB) February 27, 2014 -- Priority Energy and StreetScape Development, who together won the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Builders Challenge Award in 2013, will partner again to create 27 new “Builders Challenge” homes at Floral Avenue in Skokie, IL. Priority Energy will provide the energy efficiency products and verification services that will enable the homes to meet the DOE’s rigorous requirements for superior indoor air quality, minimal air and moisture leakage, durability and ultra-low utility costs.
A DOE Builders Challenge Home must meet national program requirements in order to achieve this prestigious title. To accomplish this, StreetScape partnered with leading energy solutions company, Priority Energy in Park Ridge. Their expertise and high-performance product line will enable the homes to go above and beyond IECC 2012 building code requirements as well as exceed Energy Star 3.0 standards for air leakage, water management, indoor air quality, and duct sealing.
Priority Energy’s products include EnviroDri, Tuff’n Dri, Aeroseal, Lifebreath Clean Air Furnaces, HRVs, and Intellihot Tankless Water Heaters. In addition to the comfort and health benefits associated with these products, homeowners will have utility costs that are 40-50% less than those of a typical house.
“Only 1% of all the builders in the U.S. are committed to this standard of energy efficiency in their homes. We are proud to be Streetscape’s Builders-Challenge partners,” says Robert Schildgen, owner of Priority Energy. “Floral Avenue homeowners can be assured they have a home with the latest energy efficiency technology, superior construction and the smallest carbon footprint possible.”
The first phase of Streetscape Development’s Floral Avenue project will consist of 7 single-family homes and 12 smaller coach homes in a community-oriented, walk-to-town location. The revitalization will be the largest single-family residential development built in Skokie in the last 15 years. Prices start in the mid-$300,000s and construction is scheduled to begin this spring.
