The LEED (Leadership in Energy Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System® is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings. Members of the Green Building Council, representing all segments of the building industry, developed LEED and continue to contribute to its evolution. LEED provides a complete framework for assessing building performance and meeting sustainability goals. Based on well-founded scientific standards, LEED emphasizes state of the art strategies for sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
Avista Utilities' customers that achieve a minimum of 4 points for optimized energy performance and comply with all LEED whole building modeling requirements are eligible for a $1.25 per conditioned square foot rebate through Avista's LEED (New Construction) and $.50 per conditioned square foot through the LEED (Existing Building) Certification Incentive Program.
