Summary: 

The Residential Standard Offer Program and Hard to Reach Standard Offer Program provide incentives to Project Sponsor contractors for installing energy efficiency measures at the homes of residential customers. Both programs provide incentives for upgrades to residential properties; however the Hard to Reach Program focuses on low-income homes and underserved communities. Project Sponsors agree with customers on terms including measures to be installed, conditions of sale, and price.  Customers will be asked to sign and date the Host Customer Agreement and Acknowledgement form provided by TCC or TNC to document participation in the RSOP or HTRSOP.  TCC or TNC will select a random sample of sites and measures to inspect and will contact those customers to schedule the inspection. View the program web site to see information on both of these Standard Offer Programs.

The ENERGY STAR Program provides incentives to builders in the Texas Central Company Energy service territory for the new construction of ENERGY STAR certified homes. The homes must meet a minimum requirement set forth by AEP program guidelines. Incentives are tied directly to the amount of energy savings. Depending upon the physical location of the home, homes will be paid based upon kW and kWh that is calculated for each home. Eligible features include high efficiency windows, HVAC equipment, tight duct work, lighting upgrades and advanced framing.
