ENERGY STAR Update - April 25, 2006

Over 1,000 ENERGY STAR Homes Built


Over 1,000 ENERGY STAR qualified manufactured homes have been built since the energy tax credit was passed, generating around $1 million in tax credits for those participating manufacturers. Thirty-five plants are now actively building ENERGY STAR homes and the pace of construction continues to increase. MHRA projects that by the end of 2006, HUD-code manufacturers will build over 10,000 ENERGY STAR homes; homes that will reduce monthly homeownership costs, improve comfort and provide substantial tax benefits for participating manufacturers. MHRA is working with state associations, utilities and public agencies on additional incentives to increase demand for ENERGY STAR homes.
