Requirements & Incentives


RAHP utilizes the Energy Design Rating (EDR) to determine program eligibility. Of the multiple EDRs generated by the Title-24 modeling software, RAHP utilizes the Delta EDR — the difference between the Standard Efficiency EDR and Proposed Efficiency EDR  to calculate program eligibility.

Incentives are specific to the plan type and orientation of each lot. The estimated incentives rise incrementally with the performance of the building.


RAHP offers escalating core incentive starting at $200 per lot for 2.0 Delta EDR and provides increments with every 0.1 increase in the Delta EDR score. Incentives ramp up more rapidly once the delta EDR hits a score of 6.0. Additionally, bonuses are available to assist with program eligibility as well as achieving higher incentives.
