Idaho Power is offering an energy efficiency incentive for residential new construction projects. The Residential New Construction Pilot Program offers builders a $1,500 incentive to build energy-efficient, all-electric homes using heat-pump technology.
These homes meet strict requirements to make them at least 20% more energy efficient than homes built to standard state energy code.
Residential New Construction Pilot Program homes feature:
- High-performance heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems
- High-efficiency windows
- Increased insulation values
- Tighter building shells
Customers living in energy efficient electric homes will benefit from a safe, comfortable and environmentally friendly living environment.
“An Idaho Power employee told me about the benefits of all-electric buildings,” said Kelly Perryman, who received incentives for apartments his company is building in Meridian. “Once I looked into it, I learned how much easier it was from a constructability standpoint. Plus, the buildings are safer and more energy efficient. Idaho Power’s incentives make it worth it, and I feel good about doing something better for our community.”
