How does it work?

  • Home builders and developers earn rebates by constructing homes to Silver Star, Gold Star or Platinum Star energy efficiency standards based on the Home Energy Ratings System (HERS) Index score
    • HERS score can be described as a sort of miles-per-gallon sticker that provides homeowners and prospective buyers with insight into the home’s energy efficiency. HERS scores typically range from 0 to 150 — the lower the HERS score, the more energy efficient the home.

2017 Criteria

  • New construction must be a single-family home, duplex or multi-family end unit in I&M’s Indiana service territory
  • Homes must be on a residential billing tariff to be eligible for rebates
  • Application must be postmarked or emailed within 90 days of HERS certification (below) and prior to December 13, 2017
  • HERS home rating
    • Must occur between January 1, 2017 and December 13, 2017
    • Must be submitted with application
    • May be obtained from a local certified rater – Find a RESNET Home Energy Rater
  • Not eligible:
    • Ground source heat pumps
    • Dual-fuel systems, where a heat pump is used in conjunction with a gas furnace
  • See application for complete requirements and terms and conditions

Note: If a home does not meet all of these qualifications, rebates may be available through I&M’s Home Energy Products Program. However, homes are not eligible for rebates through both the Energy Efficient Products Program and the Home New Construction program.
