The Pennsylvania Energy Efficient New Homes Program

Builder incentives are available for qualifying homes within FirstEnergy’s Pennsylvania utilities’ service areas: Met-Ed, Penelec, Penn Power and West Penn Power.

The Pennsylvania Energy Efficient New Homes Program offers at minimum 30¢ per kWh saved for homes that meet energy efficiency requirements. Additional incentives are available for builders who comply with ENERGY STAR® V3.0 certification requirements or who build housing for low-income residents. Incentives and eligibility

In addition to financial incentives, participating contractors have access to marketing and educational materials that help distinguish participants from their competition. Participants are also eligible to receive recognition on the Builder Showcase.

To qualify for incentives, homes will meet rigorous third-party verification standards for energy efficiency, providing the following advantages to homebuyers and their families:

  • Increased Comfort
  • Enhanced Energy Performance and Savings
  • Increased Marketability
