BOISE — The Idaho Power Residential New Construction Pilot Program offers builders a $1,500 incentive to build energy-efficient, all-electric homes using heat-pump technology.
These homes must meet strict requirements to make them at least 20 percent more energy-efficient than homes built to standard state energy code.
Residential New Construction Pilot Program homes must feature the following:
- High-performance heating, ventilation and air conditioning 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.
