Clifton View Homes received a Gold award in 2009 and a Silver in 2010 for two outstanding homes built in the Coupeville area. Both homes were built using Structural Insulated Panels, geothermal heating systems, and were oriented properly to take advantage of solar radiation and thermal mass storage in the floors. The 2009 winner incorporated a 3.0 PV system that helped the house achieve a 32HERS Index. The 2010 winner did not include PV but did receive a 41 HERS Index.
