Focus on Energy's New Homes Program certifies homes that are built more efficient than the current Wisconsin Building Code. Incentives are available depending on the level of efficiency that the new home achieves, and are claimed by the builder or the homeowner that serves as the general contractor and holds the permits.
In order to participate in the program, interested customers must find a New Homes builder through the Focus on Energy website and work with an accredited building performance consultant.
Please note that customer eligibility for Focus on Energy incentives is based on utility participation; interested individuals and companies should use the eligibility tool on the program web site to determine if their local utility participates in the Focus on Energy program.
