The ENERGY STAR New Homes Program provides homeowners and their chosen builders with financial incentives to build high-efficiency new homes.
We support homeowners and their home builders by providing:
New construction and equipment recommendations from an ENERGY STAR-certified HERS Rater prior to building. The program covers the cost to review original home architectural plans and/or the property.
Financial incentives for builders to offset the upfront cost of building more efficient new homes.
A post-construction energy efficiency inspection to ensure ENERGY STAR standards have been met.
Along the way, you'll also learn more about the features of the energy-efficient equipment used in your ENERGY STAR new home. Your decision to build a more energy-efficient home will help you save energy and improve comfort for you and your family.
