Building an Energy Efficient Home?
The CenterPoint Energy High Efficiency Homes® program promotes local builders who build and certify high performance and ENERGY STAR® homes. These homes use less energy than one built only to the Texas residential building code, providing homeowners with a more comfortable home that operates for less money. An independent third party home energy rater tests every home in this program to help ensure that it meets strict energy efficiency specifications, which result in lower utility bills and a cleaner environment. On average, each one of our high efficiency homes is rated 18% above code, translating to a yearly electric bill reduction between $200-500.
Over the last 14 years, our High Efficiency Homes brand has incentivized over 50,000 above code homes, and incentivized over 104,000 ENERGY STAR homes.
