Marlette currently builds about 562 manufactured homes per year to the Northwest Energy Efficient Manufactured Homes (NEEM) Program and for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Building America Industrialized Housing Partnership guidelines. These state-certified energy efficient manufactured homes use about 30 percent less energy for heating, cooling and water heating than a manufactured home built to federal standards.
