Support for Homebuilders

Building energy-efficient homes helps ensure our communities are using energy wisely — today and for years to come. Comfort is built from the ground up, which is why PSO is proud to partner with homebuilders dedicated to delivering value through high-efficiency new homes.

Laying the Foundation for Energy-Efficient Homes

Compare New Home Rebates

PSO offers up to $5,000 in rebates to homebuilders who construct energy-efficient homes. New homes must adhere to PSO guidelines, have third-party validation, and pass thermal bypass inspections, building envelope pressure tests, and duct pressure tests. 


To qualify for rebates, a home must be enrolled in the PSO service before the walls are framed, and homebuilders must contract with an independent HERS rater during the early stages of design and construction.
