Jackson EMC Honors Area Right Choice Homebuilders with Awards

Area homebuilders who follow Jackson EMC’s Right Choice new home construction standards for energy efficiency and comfort were recently honored at an awards ceremony.

“Builders who commit to building new homes in the Right Choice program show they’re focused on providing quality homes for their clients,” said Jackson EMC’s Director of Residential Marketing Christy Queen. “Jackson EMC’s Right Choice program is known among area builders as a symbol of energy efficient construction. We’re honored to recognize those builders who ensure their homeowners have a high-quality home that provides energy efficiency and comfort.”

Jackson EMC annually recognizes Right Choice homebuilders with best-in-class and several Community Spotlight awards. For the best-in-class awards, the program presents a Builder of the Year award and a Leadership Award to an organization or individual in each of three categories. The category classification is based on the number of Right Choice homes completed in a year.

The Builder of the Year award recognizes the effort and excellence of a company and its team. The Leadership Award recognizes a builder’s or superintendent’s individual efforts.

The Community Spotlight Award is given to Right Choice builders whose dedication to energy efficient construction has had a tremendous impact on the Jackson EMC community. These are companies who have championed the Right Choice brand in both excellence and volume.

Diamond class awards are given to companies that have built more than 50 Right Choice homes during the year. Platinum class awards honor companies that build 10-49 Right Choice homes during the year. Gold class awards honor builders who built up to nine Right Choice homes during the year.

Right Choice homes are built exclusively in Jackson EMC’s service area. The following list of winners includes the location where they are currently building Right Choice homes in the local community.
