About this Article
When Caryn Rosborough and her husband, Matt, started talking to builders about a new Elgin home, they were intrigued by the talk of high energy efficiency. Pete Stefani, president of Naperville-based Kings Court Builders, said the Elgin home his company built isn't LEED-certified or up to the standards of the green building program through the National Association of Homebuilders. But the energy efficient house the Rosboroughs moved into in August is Kings Court Builders' new standard. And because of the Residential New construction Program offered by Nicor Gas and ComEd, the builder got a rebate for the work.
