''''' The Home Energy Rebate Option (HERO) - [ Existing Homes Program] is offered by the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for residents to receive cash rebates for energy efficient improvements to existing homes that achieve a minimum of 30% energy reduction. The incentive amount is based on two factors, either the Cost of Energy Savings determined by comparing the pre-improved home to the post-improved home over the useful life of the added improvements* or the cost of the energy efficiency improvements. The cash rebate is 20% of the lesser of the two amounts up to a maximum rebate of $2,000. Owners of an existing single-family homes and two-unit residences, are eligible to apply under this program. In order to qualify, residents must make improvements that result in an annual energy savings of at least 30%. Each residence must be metered separately. In addition, certain improvements are assigned point values, which are listed on the program web site. In order to qualify, residents must incorporate any of these improvements with point values that add up to 2 to participate and 6 to receive the maximum rebate incentive. All applications must be submitted prior to the start of any renovation. The homeowner contacts a certified home energy rater listed on the Louisiana DNR site and, pending funding, gets a preliminary rating containing proposed improvements. After the home has been rated, the homeowner must make the improvements within six months. Following a final verification rating by the home rater, the HERO Program will issue a rebate to the homeowner. HERO Program rebates are taxable and Participants will receive a 1099-MISC, Miscellaneous Income Form from the State of Louisiana for the year in which the rebate is received. While the HERO Program is currently ongoing, it is scheduled to sunset over the course of 2013.
