How Residential Renovations and Additions Incentives are Calculated

Incentive eligibility depends on whether the home meets minimum energy savings requirements. Incentives are determined by the amount of electric savings, fuel savings (natural gas, propane, or oil), and overall performance compared to the program baseline. Read more about how to receive incentives on a Pay for Savings basis.

Here's how it works:

  • 1 Pre-construction home. During an initial site visit, we calculate how much energy your home currently uses.
  • 2 Baseline home. Using advanced software, we calculate energy savings for both the renovated portion of the home and the new addition.
  • 3 Post-construction home. We calculate how much energy your updated home uses.

If your renovation and/or addition incorporates energy efficiency upgrades, you may qualify for incentives.
