Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED is a green building verification system which offers third-party verification that a structure was designed and built to be energy efficient. According to the USGBC, “LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency materials selection and indoor environmental quality.”

Frontier has always built to meet high standards of energy efficiency. Frontier is committed to utilizing building practices and materials that protect our environment and help homeowners save money on monthly utility bills. ENERGY STAR® qualified new homes are at least 30% more energy efficient than regular homes and that means monthly savings. In fact, Frontier customers enjoy average monthly utility bills of $100 or less year-round.
