April 8, 2003 [] Five Michigan builders have been awarded grants from the state’s Five Star Home Grant program to build energy-efficient houses. The grant program is an incentive for Michigan builders to utilize the latest technology to reduce energy costs and pollution. As a condition of receiving the grants, the builders will be promoting these homes and showcasing the advantages of an energy-efficient home. Some of the innovative energy-saving features of the five houses include: thermal passive solar designs, hydronic in-floor heating, instant hot water heating system, maintenance-free exterior featuring mortarless brick, doors made of recycled or domestically-grown (non-tropical) woods, and energy efficient appliances.
