New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program offers the Residential New Construction Program to incentivize the construction of new homes that meet standards for the following: IECC 2015, EPA ENERGY STAR Certified New Homes, Multifamily High-Rise and the DOE Zero Energy Ready Home Program. The program provides a range of financial incentives depending on the energy efficiency of the homes. Both single family and multifamily buildings are eligible for the program.
The Program offers builders flexibility and options to participate in the program by building homes to varying standards or guidelines. In all cases, the Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is used to calculate the home’s energy efficiency achieved and to determine the cash rebate the builder will earn. The three standards are outlined below:
The incentive structure offers the builder varying incentive amounts based on the type of residence (single-family, townhouse, and multi-family) and the level of energy efficiency that the home achieves compared to a reference home. Details of this structure are available on the program website. Please contact the program administrator for more information.
