  • 1 Get Started. Fill out the Interest Form. Within a few days, a Sponsor representative will contact you to proceed. If you have questions, please call us at 1-866-527-SAVE (7283) or email [email protected].
  • Want to work with a third-party verifier or HERS rater? Contact one of our third-party verifiers to get started instead.
  • 2 Schedule a preliminary site visit prior to the start of construction or demolition to your home. A Sponsor representative or third-party verifier will schedule a preliminary site visit at your home. 
  • 3 During the preliminary site visit. A Sponsor representative or third-party verifier will perform a baseline evaluation, review your plans, estimate possible energy savings, and may recommend additional energy efficiency upgrades. This visit takes 1-2 hours.  
  • 4 Receive a preliminary report. Customers typically receive an estimate of the savings and incentive amount after the preliminary site visit.
  • 5 Schedule insulation inspection. If you are installing new insulation, contact a Sponsor representative or third-party verifier to schedule your insulation inspection, or to receive instructions on how to complete a remote inspection. Please ensure you schedule this inspection to take place once the insulation work is complete but before wallboard has gone up. In lieu of an onsite inspection, you may be eligible for a virtual inspection.
  • 6 Schedule a final inspection. As you near completion, set up a final site visit with your Sponsor representative or third-party verifier. They will finalize all the details, and your final inspection typically takes about 30 minutes.
  • 7 Receive your incentive. After the final inspection is processed, you’ll receive an incentive completion notification and post-participation survey via email. Within 10–12 weeks of your final inspection, you’ll receive an incentive check in the mail.
