eps-score EPS, or energy performance score, rates the efficiency of a home and measures it against similar sized-homes in the area. With EPS, the lower the score, the more efficient the home. Scores can range anywhere from 0 to over 200, with zero being the best possible rating. Visit the Energy Trust of Oregon site to read more about EPS and why it's important to you!
