Get $1,300 in Rebates for New Energy-saving Homes

Builders can save money and protect the environment by making smart energy choices while constructing a new home. For example, using spray foam insulation can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 40%.

The New Home Construction rebate makes it worthwhile to design and build homes that increase comfort, reduce energy use and maintain a home’s value.

The Indiana New Home Construction flyers provide at-a-glance information.

In 2019, 524 Indiana homes qualified for the rebates. Those homes will save over 1 million kWh hours of energy annually—enough to power about 100 typical homes for an entire year!*

HERS Index—An Official Savings Scorecard

The Home Energy Rating System® (HERS) index is the industry standard for measuring a home’s energy usage. A certified HERS rater uses the index to determine a score—the lower the score, the more energy-saving the home.

HERS scores typically range from 0 to 100 – the lower the HERS score, the more energy efficient the home. The average Indiana home built in 2020 under I&M’s New Construction rebate offering had a HERS rating of 59. The average state score is 65 in Indiana.

Top Builders in 2020

In 2020, there were 496 homes that qualified for rebates. Lancia Homes, Granite Ridge Builders, Ideal Suburban Homes, Keller Development and Westport Homes constructing more than half of those homes. Keller Development led the way in constructing all-electric homes. See the Press Release for details.
