Summary:

South River EMC offers incentives to home buyers and builders who purchase or construct Energy Star certified single-family site built homes, manufactured homes, and multi-family dwellings. Energy Star homes must meet strict guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These homes are at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to the International Residential Code, and generally include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20–30% more efficient than average homes. Rebates differ based upon the classification of home (manufactured, site-built single family home, or multi-family dwelling) applying for rebate and whether customer is purchasing or building the home. Contractors and residents must ensure that homes have been inspected and meet standards before receiving incentive. SREMC must have an official copy of the HERS rater's report. All rebates are contingent upon utility approval, the HERS rater's report, and funding availability. See the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) Web site for a list of HERS raters in North Carolina. Visit the program web site listed above for guidelines, forms and other important information.
