Cash in

  • Project finished? Complete the claim form and mail it in.

Remember:

  • Homes must have been pre-registered to qualify.
  • Homes cannot receive both New Home Construction and HVAC and water heating rebates: you’ll need to choose one or the other.  Compare your options and pick the rebate that makes the most sense for your project.
  • Homes must be completed within three years of the construction start date. 
  • Rebate amounts will be prorated for homes less than 1,800 square feet in size.
  • Properties receiving a HERS rating must submit a copy of the fuel summary report, IECC 2012 Code Checklist, qualifying SAVE report(s) and HERS certificate, showing IECC 2012 compliance.
  • Specify on the claim form who will receive the rebate: builder or homeowner.

Resources

  • Want higher appraisals and selling prices? Make sure you’re recording all the home’s high-performance features in a format that appraisers and buyers can understand. Fill out the Residential Green and Energy Efficient Addendum.pdf for every home you build.
  • Use these messages to buyers and lenders.pdf to differentiate your property and get an appraiser who understands energy-efficient features. Just copy and paste the text into your own emails and letterhead.
