Imery Group and RESNET have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work together in promoting improved home energy performance and home energy ratings of new homes.

The intent of the MOU is to raise consumers knowledge of new home energy performance by using RESNET’s HERS Index. This will clearly differentiate homes built by Lifestyle Homes and put competitive pressure on the new home industry in the Georgia market to follow suit. It is expected that this agreement will serve as a model to other local and regional builders that would have positive outcomes for consumers, RESNET  and the new home industry.

The Georgia based Imery Group is a full-service construction, home performance, and real estate group specializing in infusing sustainability in every facet of the real estate cycle. The company received the 2011 NAHB “Green Building Project of the Year, Small Volume Single Family”. For more information visit their web site at

RESNET is interested in entering into similar agreements with other regional and local builders. Energy raters who have builder clients who would be interested in entering into an agreement with RESNET should contact Steve Baden at
