The Rocky Mountain Power ENERGY STAR New Homes program offers cash incentives to contractors who build energy-efficient homes. To qualify for this incentive, the new home must meet the Version 2.5 or 3.0 ENERGY STAR specifications and have low-e windows. Contractors building qualified homes can earn rebates for single-family or multi-family projects. Additional rebates, which are available as stand alone measures or in combination with whole home incentives, are available to contractors who install energy-saving measures that surpass ENERGY STAR home requirements. Participating contractors also have the opportunity to be featured in Rocky Mountain Power advertising and marketing efforts. Contact Rocky Mountain Power for additional information.
