EnergyAdvantage® New Homes Program
MidAmerican Energy works with home builders who build homes adhering to EnergyAdvantage® and/or ENERGY STAR® specifications. We're helping our Iowa customers recognize and realize the outstanding long-term value inherent in energy-efficient new homes. The program is available to new single-family home construction and rebates are offered to home builders for constructing Iowa homes with greater energy efficiency.
ENERGY STAR-Labeled Homes
ENERGY STAR requirements allow a builder to customize a home to account for unique features of a particular home design. Refer to www.energystar.gov
for more information on ENERGY STAR homes.
With energy-efficient construction, a house must meet strict energy-efficient guidelines, the benefits of which last for years. Added advantages of an energy-efficient home include:
Here's How it Works
- Improved and affordable comfort
- Improved indoor air quality and temperature consistency
- Strong position for high resale value
- Prevent pollution while saving money on future utility bills
- Projected positive net monthly cash flow
MidAmerican Energy works directly with home builders adhering to program specifications. The builder must upgrade the home's heating and cooling system, insulation level, windows, doors, lighting and appliances according to MidAmerican Energy's standards. Builders wishing to customize the efficiency of an individual home may contact a RESNET-certified rater to more thoroughly examine efficiency options.
