The home known as Ligon Point, located on Figure Eight Island in Wilmington and completed in 2010 by The Farlow Group, has been certified as an ENERGY STAR qualified home.  The homeowners can expect to spend less on energy costs due to the efficiency of the materials and systems installed in their home.  The electricity provider, Progress Energy Carolinas, also offers a 5% discount off regular residential rates with the ENERGY STAR qualification.

The certification of Ligon Point for ENERGY STAR rating was submitted to the EPA on behalf of The Farlow Group and the homeowners by Building Performance Specialists in Wilmington, NC, www.moisturematters.com , who performed inspections and analysis from start to finish to document that standards were met for qualification.  The commitment to energy efficiency throughout the home was important to the owners, who needed substantial square footage to accommodate visits by their large extended family, but still desired an environmentally conscious home.
