For 44 years, Custom Builders has been designing and building custom homes and commercial buildings with a focus on energy efficiency. For example, on their 1974 vintage 80,000 sf office building, which has an Energy Star rating of 96 out of 100, they have reduced the electrical consumption from 153,000 kwh to 63,000 kwh per month. All of their commercial LED parking lots get zero electric bills every month.
