Earth Advantage Institute® (EAI) began nearly a decade ago as a utility-based energy conservation program of Portland General Electric. In the spring of 2005, EAI became an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Since that time, the organization has established itself as the Northwest’s premier service provider of green building programs in the residential market.

Earth Advantage Institute certifies homes as a third-party verifier for the ENERGY STAR® and LEED® for Homes programs, as well as for its own residential, commercial, communities, and remodeling programs. In addition, EAI provides green design and consulting services, conducts education and training seminars, and is a key contributor to the development of green building standards. The organization includes over 400 builders, remodelers, and sponsors throughout Oregon, Southwest Washington, and Northern California, with licensed partners in the seven Northeastern states.
