2015 Existing Homes incentive updates now in effect

Updated incentives for the Existing Homes program are now in effect for projects installed on or after January 1, 2015.

To avoid confusion and provide the best guidance to your customers:

  • Make sure your staff is up-to-date on the latest incentive offers and requirements.
  • Confirm that your office is using paper and online forms updated for 2015.
  • Use the incentive guide, form PI 320I, for staff training before providing estimates to customers. The guide provides more detail on incentive requirements than the quick reference sheets.
