Energy Star Manufactured Home Program


starThe Grayson RECC ENERGY STAR Manufactured Home Program is designed to ensure that members of Grayson RECC purchase an energy efficient manufactured home.

If you're thinking of purchasing a new manufactured home, make sure it is an ENERGY STAR rated manufactured home.  After new home installation and after receiving certification as an ENERGY STAR Manufactured Home, a $1,150 incentive payment will be made to the member.  The incentive is intended to help offset the cost of ugrading the home from the standard United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) construction requirements to the SBRA and EPA ENERGY STAR Manufactured Home construction requirements.

Since the ENERGY STAR certified home uses substantially less energy for heating, cooling and water heating than a standard manufactured home, its less expensive to run.  You may save an average of more than 11,000 kWh per year when compared to the standard manufactured home.

To be eligible for this incentive, new manufactured homes must meet the following criteria:

*United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Systems Building Research Alliance (SBRA) guidelines as an ENERGY STAR Manufactured Home.

*Primary source of heat must be a heat pump 14 SEER & 8.2 HSPF or higher as required by SBRA.

*Home must be all electric.

*Home must be installed by the manufacturer on lines served by Grayson RECC.

*Participants in the ENERGY STAR Manufactured Home Program are not eligible for participation in the Heat Pump Retrofit Program.
