This program connects you with resources to build a truly energy efficient new home. Our trusted building partners create comfortable, healthy environments with economical energy use for a strong return on investment.
Xcel Energy provides incentives to your builder that offset the cost of purchasing and installing materials and equipment that reduce energy use in your new home. Highly trained and experienced energy raters consult with your builder during the construction process and provide diagnostic testing, blower door testing, infrared scanning, and third-party verification to ensure your home is energy efficient and comfortable.
This program helps your builder create a home for you that surpasses other homes in terms of comfort, energy efficiency, moisture control, air quality, and durability.
You must be a natural gas or electric customer of Xcel Energy in Minnesota and be enrolled in this program prior to the start of construction.
