When you are ready to build an energy-efficient home, get the support you need by selecting an approved verifier. Verifiers offer technical support, project modeling and advice on best practices. By consulting with a verifier early in the home-building process, you will be able to save time, money and prevent costly callbacks.
During construction, your verifier will review building components and confirm compliance with EPS requirements. Inspections must be scheduled at two different points: before installing drywall and at project completion.
Please note that you are responsible for initial communication and contracting with a third-party approved program verifier in order to qualify for incentives.
In addition, your project will need to be approved by a performance testing contractor to ensure that systems and equipment work as designed. Visit the contractor search tool for a program approved heating and cooling contractor in your area, or have your subcontractor contact the trade ally coordinator at 1.877.283.0698 to become a participating trade ally.
