How to Use Anaheim’s Green Building Program
Select a rating program: Take a look at the charts above and select the appropriate level of LEED certification or number of housing units.
Build your project: With your chosen rating program and its requirements in hand, you can start designing your dream project. While you are putting the final touches on construction, you can start applying for the many other energy and water incentives available. This will help boost your bottom line, reduce payback time on your investment and lower operating costs.
Get certified: We will require a copy of the final certification by an appropriate organization, such as the US Green Building Council.
