Habitat for humanity gets greener

Habitat for Humanity has announced plans to build over 5000 green homes across America:

"This is unquestionably the largest scale accelerated initiative we’ve taken on to drive green building," said Jonathan Reckford, the chief executive of Habitat for Humanity International. The $30 million initiative, he added, would bring rapid payback for families in terms of lower energy bills.

I can't imagine a better plan for lower-income housing than to reduce energy costs for the people living there.
