Incentives are based on improvements to a home’s annual energy use over minimum code requirements, as demonstrated by energy modeling. Incentives are available on a sliding scale of performance above code, starting at 10 percent above code. Incentives will vary depending on energy-efficiency improvements and performance above code.

Additional incentives for energy-saving equipment are available, although incentives for air sealing will no longer be offered in 2017.
