Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Market Transformation Program

The Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Market Transformation Program provides you with a new approach to whole-house energy efficiency. Through this program, you work with a specially trained contractor who will diagnose your home’s energy usage and recommend steps you can take to improve the comfort, durability and energy efficiency of your home. 

The contractor will typically charge a fee for your Home Energy Assessment, but you can receive up to $3,000 from CenterPoint Energy for eligible home improvement projects selected as a result of this assessment.  For more program information, please email

Once you have selected a participating contractor, they will schedule a convenient time to perform your Home Energy Assessment. This whole-house assessment will take from two to four hours, depending upon the size and complexity of your home. The fee charged for the Home Energy Assessment varies by contractor. Your contractor will review findings and recommendations for improvements, and develop a home performance contract prior to the installation of energy efficiency measures.  A CenterPoint Energy representative will perform a quality assurance check of work completed at your home, working with your contractor to remediate any issues.

Approximately six to eight weeks after a final inspection of your home, you’ll receive an incentive check from CenterPoint Energy. Then, you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your more comfortable and energy-efficient home!

Program Eligibility

In order to participate, your home must not have received any improvements from any other CenterPoint Energy program within the past ten years.
