Ninety-three percent of all home buyers, both nationally and in the New York metro area, are not willing to pay more for green or energy efficient features when building a home, according to a recent independent study commissioned by The New York Times Customer Insight Group (PDF).

The New York Times Customer Insight Group surveyed 700 young, affluent, prospective home buyers across the country via online interviews, including 250 buyers in the New York metro area.
