At some level this is an empirical question: do the benefits of platinum standard construction (echoing LEED) outweigh the necessity of using a car to meet daily needs? My gut instinct is "no", but I'd think that one ought to math it out.

If you are not commuting (to work or school), though, I really don't think daily car use is necessary (yes, some people will choose to do it). And, in any case, that car use will not be any worse than the typical suburban house (which won't have any of the other environmental aspects).
