Green Ribbon Homes™

Green Ribbon Home™  is a high efficiency net zero manufactured and modular home system.  The Green Ribbon Home™ by GSWPS is ideal for down-sizing seniors and others. 

Designed from the ground up to use only as much energy as it produces, the Green Ribbon™ Home is an Energy Star™ rated house that is built at the Hallmark Southwest Corporation factory in Loma Linda to Green Ribbon™ Home standards.

A Green Ribbon home

These homes are designed to make use of Federal and State Utility mandates known as “Net Metering”. Net Metering requires the utility company to allow homes that are connected to the power grid to receive credit for the unused energy they produce from roof top solar power or other renewable power applications.

With net metering, the electric power produced by the Green Ribbon™ Home while the sun is shining during the day, can be returned to the grid and literally “spin the utility meter backwards”. At night, when the sun is no longer shining, the occupants turn on their lights and appliances, which will then draw power back from the utility company against the credit their solar power system produced for them during the day time.

Because of the many energy efficient features built into the Green Ribbon™ Home, the use of power during the night can strike a balance against the credit produced from unused electric generation during the day. This point balance results in a “net” difference of zero dollars owed on the utility bill, a “net zero energy” bill.
