ENERGY STAR New Home Videos: From groundbreaking to FOR SALE Sign
Videos created by Ameren Illinois Act on Energy.
Troy Libbra is Managing Partner of Better Way Builders, a progressive green homebuilder in central Illinois that focuses on building high performance, energy-efficient homes. Under his guidance, Better Way Builders built the first Energy Star home in downstate Illinois to achieve a 5 Star Plus rating AND the first house in Illinois to meet the Department of Energy’s Builder Challenge.
As Chair of the Green Building Council, Troy works with the council and HBA staff to build awareness and education of green building practices within the HBA and community. Troy is thorough in his research, pays meticulous attention to detail and “swings a hammer” on his projects, earning him the trust and respect of his clients.
Troy’s latest project is Grant Estates, a subdivision in Brighton, Ill. committed to building only ENERGY STAR qualified homes. The first completed home has earned an ENERGY STAR rating of 47, which is an impressive rating considering homes have to get a rating of 85 or less to qualify. It is currently on display as a showcase home, open to the public.
