Homes built at least 7% better than code qualify for the entry level of the program while those built 15% better qualify as energy right Platinum or Platinum Certified (ENERGY STAR Certified). A variety of efficiency standards must be met in order to reach the specified levels. In addition, incentives are offered for advanced water heaters installed in new homes.
The energy right Manufactured Homes Program promotes the installation of electric heat pumps in new manufactured homes. Program features include a network of HVAC contractors and incentives. Customers should contact their local utilities to see what programs are offered.
