The Green Path program encourages and facilitates design and construction of energy efficient buildings that substantially exceed code minimum. The program also rewards those who build green by expediting the review time of their submitted building plans and providing them with preliminary plan reviews at no cost.

For commercial construction, renovations and developments the building must substantially exceed code minimum and be LEED Gold or LEED Silver with a minimum of 6 energy points in order to follow Green Path criteria.

Resident housing must also substantially exceed code minimum. Projects must be Build Green New Mexico (BGNM) Silver with a HERS rating of 60 or LEED for Homes Silver with a HERS rating of 60.

Both situations will go through an expedited permitting application process in order to receive the benefits of the Green Path Program.
