KB Home (NYSE:KBH), one of America’s premier homebuilders, today announced that this Friday, April 22 will be EPG Day in KB Home markets and communities across the country. On this day, EPG means “Everybody Put on Green” in support of Earth Day and KB Home’s industry-leading environmental initiatives. KB Home will be taking this message to the streets, with green street teams out in each of its markets throughout the day on Friday, April 22. The green street teams will be handing out “green” in the form of $10 vouchers which can be taken to any KB Home community through Sunday, April 24 and redeemed for a $10 gift card. Visitors to KB Home communities can also enter for a chance to win even more “green”—a $2,500 cash prize.
EPG Day will also raise awareness about KB Home’s new EPG, or Energy Performance Guide™, now included in every KB home. Similar to the miles per gallon rating or MPG, which reflects fuel efficiency and is standard when purchasing a new car, the KB Home EPG informs prospective buyers about the relative energy efficiency of a KB home versus a typical new or resale home, and provides them with an estimated dollar amount for the monthly electric and/or gas energy costs for the home as designed. For the first time, KB Home can project for homebuyers the potential financial benefit of owning an energy-efficient KB home based on data provided by independent third-party consultants.
