Huntsville Area Association of REALTORS® Joins North Alabama Buildings Performance Challenge

Huntsville, AL – One of Huntsville’s most prominent professional organizations, the Huntsville Area Association of REALTORS® (HAAR), has joined the North Alabama Buildings Performance Challenge, committing to achieve ENERGY STAR certification within 10 years. HAAR is reducing operating costs to deliver more resources toward their members and and ultimately the community at-large.

“We strongly believe this is not just financially beneficial but also the right thing the do,” says Josh McFall, CEO of the Huntsville Area Association of REALTORS®. “Energy efficiency is increasingly important to home-buyers and we want to lead the way.”

The North Alabama Buildings Performance Challenge aims to support the Department of Energy’s goal of helping businesses save energy costs, enabling them to grow, invest in new technology, and create American jobs. The North Alabama Buildings Performance Challenge has identified over $50 million dollars of low hanging savings potential in Huntsville alone.

“HAAR is clearly stepping up to the plate,” says Daniel Tait, CEO of Energy Alabama. “Homeownership is fundamental to the fabric of our community and it’s great to know our local professionals want homeownership to be as affordable as possible.”

The North Alabama Buildings Performance Challenge is a collaborative effort of Avion Solutions Inc., the Energy Huntsville Initiative, and Energy Alabama. The Challenge now boasts over 8 million square feet of participating building space.
