and Incentives for Factory Built ENERGY STAR Homes|
The number and variety of incentives for ENERGY STAR factory built
homes is on the rise. Many utilities and state agencies are turning
to financial incentives as a way to promote efficient construction.
An array of tax credits, sales tax reductions, utility rate discounts and
direct payments are being offered from coast to coast for factory builders, retailers/dealers or homebuyers. Amounts vary, but most incentives
are between $500 and $1,750, although with several programs the benefits
reach well beyond $2,000, frequently in the form of a tax reduction.
The Systems Building Research Alliance is monitoring
programs that might benefit the factory building industry and its customers,
and has begun to compile a list of available incentives by state.
Several of these programs are administered by SBRA. The rebates are paid directly
to the manufacturer for each new ENERGY STAR home they sell to customers of the utility. More
information about the current rebate programs is below.
For questions, contact Gwynne Koch, SBRA ENERGY STAR Program Manager,
