ENERGY STAR® featured at
the National Congress & Expo

This year’s Manufactured Housing Congress in Las Vegas will feature a presentation about the Manufactured Housing Energy Star program.  Energy Star activity is heating up, with utilities in the Southwest offering incentives for Energy Star construction.  The seminar is an ideal opportunity to hear about Energy Star marketing approaches that will help customers recognize the value of buying an Energy Star home.  Speakers include: Emanuel Levy (Manufactured Housing Research Alliance), Larry Rackley (Nevada Power Company) and Sam Rashkin (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency).  For any company interested in energy efficiency and Energy Star, this is a must attend event.

Thursday, April 12th: Energy Star – Tomorrow’s Technology, Today


The National Congress and Expo for Manufactured and Modular Housing is being held April 10th–12th at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.  For more information, visit or call (703) 558-0657. 

More than 3,300 ENERGY STAR
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.
