Program Incentives

Financial incentives are available for builders of new homes serviced by Met-Ed, Penelec, Penn Power or West Penn Power.

The program offers two financial incentive tiers:

The table below summarizes the Program’s incentive structure
Requirement Incentives
≥15% above 2009 IECC code 30¢ per kWh
≥15% above 2009 IECC code + ENERGY STAR V3.0 certification 35¢ per kWh

With incentives measured by total kWh saved annually, the more builders save the more they earn. Builders of qualifying homes can earn hundreds of dollars or more. For multifamily projects, builders can earn thousands of dollars per building with rebates issued on a per-unit basis.

All homes must be inspected and verified by a certified HERS Rater to qualify for program incentives. ENERGY STAR-certified homes must also complete all V3.0 checklists.

*The percent savings over code is determined in REM/Rate using the FirstEnergy Pennsylvania Report. This report is customized for Pennsylvania and includes savings from high-efficiency HVAC, water heaters and lighting.
