Home Energy Score API

We propose a Home Energy Score API to allow home buyers and renters to know the energy performance of a home as part of the purchasing or rental decision. The home energy score should be available on home purchasing sites like MLS, Realtor.com, and Zillow and on apartment rental sites like Rent.com, Airbnb.com and Apartments.com. This information should be as easily accessible as the miles per gallon rating on vehicles ...more »
