Transcript of Energy Conservation Discount Energy Efficient Home Program (Energy Star Program)
Energy Efficient Home Program(Energy Star Program) If you are planning to build or buy a new home the energy efficient home program is a great option! An Energy Efficient home saves you money, provides greater comfort and helps protect the environment by using less energy. Energy Efficient Homes are: At least 15 percent more energy-efficient than standard homes
Meet or exceed ENERGY STAR standards.
The ONLY new homes that receive a 5 percent monthly energy discount from Progress Energy for the lifetime of the home. $AVINGS!!! The savings add up$$$
The energy you’ll save when you invest in an energy-efficient Home will actually pay you back month over month.
The total cost of home ownership each month includes not only your mortgage, but also the cost of utilities and home maintenance. With the Energy Efficient Home Program, the total cost of home ownership could go down by hundreds of dollars every year. For example:
When you add $1,500 for energy-efficiency upgrades to the cost of a $200,000 home:
The mortgage goes up by just $9 a month. (With a fixed 30-year, 6% mortgage.)
Monthly utility bills could come down by as much as $31 per month.
This adds up to a net savings of $22 a month, or $264 a year. And that's before the 5 percent monthly energy discount! The Energy Efficient Home program includes a variety of energy-saving features such as:
Energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment
Sealed air ducts
