John Ela, chief executive officer and president of Epoch Homes in Pembroke, N.H, has been named the 2011 Certified Green Professional (CGP) of the Year by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in recognition of his successful efforts to make green and energy-efficient homes more understandable – and thus more attainable to home buyers.

Ela was recognized at NAHB’s Designation Achievement Reception at the 2012 International Builders’ Show in Orlando, Fla last week.

“When John talks to potential home buyers and home builders about how Epoch’s homes are built to be more energy-, water- and resource-efficient, he uses the perspective and knowledge he has gained as a green building pioneer in the state and as a home builder who holds the CGP educational designation,” said Thomas W. Bailey, CGP, a home builder from Plano, Texas, and chair of NAHB’s Green Building Designations’ Board of Governors. “John is raising awareness of the Certified Green Professional.”
Certified Green Professionals must have two years of experience in the home building industry and complete 24 hours of classroom instruction on green building science and business management techniques.  CGPs must earn continuing education every three years to keep the designation current.

Way to go John.  You're always proving that modular is the best way to build a new home.
