UGI Save Smart New Homes
Take advantage of financial incentives, marketing support, and community recognition.
Financial incentives are available for newly built homes that exceed state and local energy code requirements. Each builder works with a certified HERS Rater, who creates a HERS Rating for each home. This third-party analysis of the homes’ annual energy use is compared to the annual energy use of a home built to code standards. Incentive amounts are based on annual MMBtu savings of the newly constructed home compared to a code-minimum custom UGI reference home using REM/Rate software.
UGI has partnered with ENERGY STAR® to encourage building homes with a higher level of energy efficiency. Builder incentives are available for qualifying ENERGY STAR® and Code Plus homes located in the UGI Natural Gas Pennsylvania service area. Participation will help you adopt more energy-efficient construction practices, assist with marketing and advertising new construction projects, and provide you with financial incentives. Join the growing team of quality builders who recognize the benefits of building energy-efficient housing.
HERS Raters provide third-party energy savings verification, which is used to determine incentive eligibility for each participating home. All participating raters must be fully certified and working under a HERS Provider, and need to complete a participation agreement in order to submit homes to the UGI Save Smart New Homes program.
