The New Homes Performance program for Clark County was introduced in October of 2017 and offers incentives to builders who increase the energy efficiency of newly built homes at least 10% above current Washington State Energy Code standards. Homebuyers have the opportunity to purchase a home from a participating builder that is constructing homes to this higher standard.
Builders can earn a cash incentive to build energy-efficient, single-family homes in Idaho Power’s service area.
These homes must meet strict requirements that make them at least 20 percent 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 and comfortable homeowners.
