The Progress Energy Carolinas' Home Advantage Program is designed to reward home builders, manufactured housing manufacturers, and manufactured housing retailers, and multifamily unit builders with incentives for building and selling ENERGY STAR homes. Cash rebates are available to builders or developers of new single family, multifamily, high-rise multifamily dwellings, and manufactured housing. In order to qualify for the whole home rebates, homes must be certified Energy Star. Additional incentives, ranging from $300 - $600 per unit, are available for HVAC equipment that surpasses the Energy Star Certified Home requirements. The rebate application is located on the program website. Progress Energy Carolinas will also match 50% of the builders' advertising costs up to $50 per dwelling and pay a sales lot incentive of $100 to retailers for selling an Energy Star manufactured home.
