Through Minnesota Power's Triple E New Construction Program, homeowners and builders can qualify for special incentive rebates by meeting specific energy standards on new home construction. These standards cover thermal integrity (insulation, windows and doors, exterior wind barriers), airtight construction, moisture control, appliances, lighting, ventilation, and heating system performance for air and water. State-licensed builders or owner-builders whose homes meet all of the thermal and performance standards are eligible for a $2,000 rebate. This program is open to all residential new construction built in Minnesota Power's service area with a maximum of four units per dwelling. The program is divided into two tiers with different efficiency requirements for each. Homes meeting the tier II level of standards also qualify as an ENERGY STAR certified home. For additional information on specific guidelines and requirements, review the program website.
