Image: Building a Touchstone Energy Home
The Touchstone Energy Home program includes a list of standards to help you maximize energy efficiency and build a comfortable, safe home for your family. Standards touch on every part of the building process:
site, foundation and basement
windows and doors
HVAC, water heating and electrical
Following these standards correctly will give you peace of mind when making decisions about material and product selection and knowing the building process will be done right, too.

Save money through rebates
Our cooperative offers Touchstone Energy Home rebates for new homes or major home remodels. If the project includes a HERS rating, the rebate is $1,000. If there is no HERS rating, but the standards are met, the rebate is $500. Find more details about HERS here.
In addition, our cooperative offers more rebates to benefit your home building project. Rebates are available for geothermal, water heaters and appliances. Contact us about the details and to find out if you qualify for additional rebates.
