The HGA or the Hamptons Green Alliance home with a green home design, according to press release, is one of LEED Platinum largest homes in the record. It is a 4,800 square-foot house that attained a HERS Index of 25.

HERS Index is a scoring system that is established by RESNET or the Residential Energy Services Network. The lower the HERS score, the more energy efficient a home is.

The green home design for the HGA house features energy efficient windows, overhangs to maximize its solar energy gain during winter seasons and sufficient shades in summers, plus home energy monitoring system, LED lighting, spray foam insulation, and Energy Star appliances.

Other green home design for the home include thin-film solar, solar photovoltaics, solar thermal for the house and pool hot water, a very efficient wood-burning fireplace, and a geothermal system. It also has dual-flush toilets, water storage that stores water from the house’s gutters, and low-flow fixtures.

The home’s owner, David and Saundra Dubin, who lost their original home in a fire, hired Telemark as the home project’s general contractor, and Craig Lee and Richard Stott as the architects.

The house received a Phase I Embodied Carbon Negative certification for its green home design.
