Jackson EMC Honors Top Right Choice Homebuilders

(JEFFERSON, GA. July 17, 2018) – Jackson EMC recently honored local companies with its Right Choice homebuilder awards. New homes built as Right Choice homes by Jackson EMC are built for energy efficiency and comfort.

“Right Choice is now 14 years old and stronger than it’s ever been,” said Amy Bryan, director of residential marketing for Jackson EMC. “This continued success is due in a large part to the commitment and belief in the program from the builders being recognized this year.”

The awards program was created by Jackson EMC last year as part of the celebration for surpassing 10 million square feet of Right Choice certified new home construction in Northeast Georgia, since the program’s inception in 2004.

The recognition program grants best in class awards and several community spotlight awards. For the best in class awards, the program grants a builder of the year and a leadership award in each of three categories. The three categories are based on the number of Right Choice homes completed in a given year.

The builder of the year award recognizes the effort and excellence of the company and their team. The leadership award recognizes a builder or superintendent whose individual effort has set the bar for everyone else. The community spotlight award is given to Right Choice builders whose dedication to energy efficient construction has a tremendous impact on the Jackson EMC community.

Builder of the year awards went to: Clayton Properties Group ­– Chafin Communities, diamond class; Sterling Residential, platinum class; and J.W. York Homes, gold class.

Leadership awards went to: Mark Findley, Kolter Homes, diamond class; Phillip Cantrell, Century Communities of Georgia, platinum class; and Eddie Duran, Premier Residential Builders, gold class.

Community spotlight awards went to: Century Communities of Georgia, Kolter Homes, MB Endeavors, Brand Properties, KCG Development, Lexus Homes, Premier Home Builders, Clayton Properties Group – Chafin Communities, Meritage Homes, RWH Home Builders, Sterling Residential, Breckingridge Oaks and Rocklyn Homes.

"The recipients of the community spotlight award are companies who have championed the Right Choice brand in both excellence and volume," Bryan said. "Commitment to quality energy efficient construction on this scale helps these homebuyers have lower bills and Jackson EMC maintain lower rates."
