Some Government Ratings Actually Work.

As a lighting designer, energy policy and concerns continue to creep their way into our everyday decisions. I view this as a good thing, as good light should also be energy effecient light. The United State Green Building Council created its LEED certification program as a tax-incentive program for buildings to become more environmentally friendly. A recent study concludes the program is working and may be able to provide the first business-sense arguments for energy effieciency in building standards.

LEED buildings rent for higher prices per square foot and are enjoying higher demand than the average market square-footage.
