What is a GreenPoint Rater?
A certified GreenPoint Rater can help you get your new or existing home project GreenPoint Rated. This professional will perform all steps of the rating process, including helping you evaluate which points to achieve, verifying each green measure, and submitting the application to Build It Green. A Rater can also serve as an Advisor on any project.
What is a GreenPoint Advisor?

An Advisor can be the designer and builder of a GreenPoint Rated project as well as advise on GreenPoint measures and verification methods. People acting as an Advisor may not verify green measures or submit projects to Greenpoint Rated for certification.
