Green Home Giveaway Experience Returns this Fall

My Green Birmingham announces sixth annual Green Home Giveaway

My Green Birmingham, the Magic City’s local guide to green living, is gearing up for the sixth annual Green Home Giveaway. Presented by Alabama Power, the Green Home Giveaway has become one of Birmingham’s most anticipated home makeover events, offering locals the chance to experience the many benefits of a healthier, more energy-efficient and eco-friendly lifestyle.

As the largest green home makeover event of its kind in the Southeast, the highly anticipated Green Home Giveaway provides one lucky homeowner with a great selection of green home upgrades. Each year, the contest draws hundreds of submissions from local homeowners eager to become the next big winner.

The Green Home Giveaway aims to inspire homeowners to create their own smarter, more efficient home environments by embracing responsible and innovative brands, products, and technology for the home. Over the years, the Green Home Giveaway event has partnered with top brands such as Alabama Power, Eco-Three, TOTO, Home Depot, CREE and more.

Past winners of the Green Home Giveaway, Laura Kate Whitney and Jason Harlos, said after purchasing their historic bungalow in 2009, they spent the greater part of the following year renovating the house and making it their own. However, after “years of neglect,” Whitney says the bungalow still lacked the benefits of modern energy efficiency, and other green, more sustainable aspects.

“We were able to supplement our own hard renovation work with real, sustainable, quality equipment that allows us to use less water, less energy, and all with a greater peace of mind.”

The entry period for the Green Home Giveaway kicks off on November 7th at the annual Moss Rock Festival. My Green Birmingham will then identify the homes of 10 semi-finalists and a panel of Green Home Giveaway sponsors will then select the top three finalists.

The three finalists will be announced via social media and the grand prize winner will then be decided by public vote! A profile of the makeover and winning home will be featured in B-Metro Magazine. An exclusive e-book Green Home Giveaway Resource Guide for homeowners will be available for download on as well.

Complete details for entering the contest will be available online in October, so be sure to check back for updates!
