"Through their excellent leadership and effort in the marketplace, partners like MHDC are ensuring that all Americans can reap the benefits of owning Energy Star homes," said Bob Perciasepe, the EPA's acting administrator.
MHDC will be receive its award at a ceremony in Washington D.C. on March 26.
