Impact

The SystemVision process is built on solid building science, easy to implement and gets results.

The program has helped developers and builders of affordable housing in North Carolina transform the way homes are built. Ten years ago, the five homes certified to the SystemVision standards were “diamonds in the rough.” Today, more than 80 percent of affordable homes in North Carolina are SystemVision certified with more than 2,700 to date since the program’s inception.

15% More Efficient

SystemVision homes are proven to be at least 15 percent more energy-efficient than code-built homes.

Advanced Energy has been able to achieve such a significant transformation through partnerships with the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency (NCHFA) and NC Community Development Initiative (CDI). Technical training and field support is provided to more than 100 affordable housing developers who voluntarily participate in the program statewide, as well as their builders, contractors and raters.
