- LEED-certified homes – This policy is offered to homes that are proven green by LEED which uses a rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council and is universally recognized as the standard in environmentally conscious building. Several homeowners insurance carriers offer discounts to owners of these homes and if yours doesn’t then ask if they are willing to.
- “Eco-Rebuild” – This policy is for homeowners who don’t have LEED certified homes but should there home ever be damaged or destroyed, it will be rebuilt with environmentally conscious materials. This policy is available as a rider to your existing homeowners insurance policy for usually around 2% or $25 of your annual premium.
