This award recognizes builders who promote energy efficient construction and help to protect the environment through their partnership with Energy Star. Charter Homes qualifies every home it builds to the Energy Star® standard, which was established by the EPA. Since 2008, Charter has built hundreds of energy star certified homes in Central Pennsylvania.
