Minnesota Energy Resources offers the Home Energy Excellence Program for builders. As a home buyer, purchasing a Home Energy Excellence home has many benefits to you. These homes were built with energy efficiency in mind and will help you save energy and money for many years.

A home constructed under this program can be recognized in one of two ways:

  • Home Energy Excellence Certification - This home meets the energy-efficiency guidelines established by Minnesota Energy Resources which are higher than the Minnesota Energy Code.
  • Home Energy Excellence Performance Certification - This home exceeds Minnesota Energy Resources' guidelines by being built with a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) rating that improved at least 8% over the average MN design HERS rating. Some homes achieve a 10% improvement or more.

If you are looking to purchase a new home, look for a certified Home Energy Excellence new home for a highly energy efficient home. Customers who purchase a new home that participated in the Minnesota Energy Resources Home Energy Excellence Program are not eligible for certain rebates under other rebate programs.

  • High efficiency natural gas furnace and water heater
  • Programmable set-back thermostat
  • Efficiently designed ventilation system
  • Compliance with air tightness standards
