Yes, ours does but it's in another section entirely. Green section includes solar, rated windows, rated appls.

I never fill it out because most of my sellers don't have a clue.

Black Knight/Paragon MLS has a box for "Green Certification".  So does FlexMLS.  I think CoreLogic Innovia does also.  You also have options for "Solar" for water heater and HVAC.

 There will also be sections in Seller Disclosures.

 Here is the green certification options from Paragon MLS:

Not out here.  If any of those things exist, they're usually mentioned in the write-up... if at all.  Everything these days is "energy star rated" so that's really a non-issue.  Solar panels are more of a pain, unless they're owned outright.  I'd actually detract for those!

 

I don't even know if our MLS has an input for the so called "green" stuff.

No all features are actually "required" to be entered into the MLS. It's lazy-making at its finest too when agents do not simply include all the features even if the MLS does not require it.

Our mls has them, but documenting them is another story. Is a triple pane window worth more then a double pane? Is an insulated vinyl door worth more or less then a custom wooden door? It won't be easy for an appraiser to compare "green" features from house to house.

No. I doubt realtors are trained and able to explain in terms of emissivity and how it relates to energy consumption. 

As for energy saving big windows it is a misnomer. That is the biggest waste in energy consumption. Dual pane has thermal resistance of R2 much much worse than R13 in an older home by a large margin, Triple is window is R3. They all developing leak over time.  The replacement cost is cost prohibitive. 

Sky tunnels etc have almost no thermal resistance. Solar panels are not welcomed if leased. No real savings.  Consumers are much sophisticated than one think.
