In order to qualify for RAHP, lots must meet a minimum 50 kWh of savings. In CBECC-Res, kWh savings can be found by going to “Tools,” selecting “Review Analysis Results,” and subtracting the Total Proposed kWh usage from the Total Standard kWh usage. In EnergyPro 7, the total proposed and standard kWh usages can be found by generating an ECON-1 report in the reports section, and kWh savings can be determined using the method described previously.
Each lot enrolled in the program must include whole-home pre-wire. Whole-home pre-wire prepares the house to go all-electric should a future homeowner prefer electric appliances. Whole-home pre-wire includes additional outlets and wiring near appliances with gas hookups, including but not limited to: the stove, clothes dryer, water heater, etc.
RAHP offers escalating core incentives starting at $200 per lot for lots achieving 50 kWh of savings. As the kWh savings increase, so does the incentive amount. Each additional 1 kWh delta results in a supplementary incentive. Once a project reaches 100 kWh in savings, each additional 1 kWh increases the total incentive even more.
Energy consultants and HERS raters can receive a $50 incentive per lot if they complete the application on behalf of builders.
Additionally, bonus measures are available to achieve higher incentives.
