More than 3,300 ENERGY
Manufactured Homes Produced in 2006
In 2006, over 3,300 Energy Star qualified manufactured homes
were produced by more than 40 certified plants across the
nation, and the pace of construction continues to increase.
MHRA projects that by the end of 2007, HUD-code manufacturers
will build between 6,000 and 7,000 new Energy Star homes;
homes that will reduce monthly homeownership costs, improve comfort and provide substantial tax benefits
for participating manufacturers. MHRA is working with
state associations, utilities and public agencies on additional
incentives to increase demand for Energy Star homes.
