The leader in LEED. Illinois is now the number one state in the country when it comes to the construction of buildings that are environmentally friendly and healthy for its occupants.
That’s according to the Clean Energy Trust, a clean-energy group based in Chicago. Qualifications include energy efficient appliances and sustainability factors, like solar panels.
“You’re helping the environment,” said David McDow, architect. “So, by having more LEED buildings, we are having healthier buildings as well as more cost efficient buildings for operation.”
