Ahhhhh! The sound of comfort and savings
Considering a mobile home purchase? When you purchase a manufactured home, you are eligible for an ENERGY STAR certified upgrade at little to no additional cost.
In most cases, custom ordered manufactured homes scheduled to be installed in our service area may be upgraded to ENERGY STAR standards through this free energy-efficiency program.
Since the ENERGY STAR certified home uses substantially less energy for heating, cooling and water heating than a standard manufactured home, it's less expensive to run. You may save an average of more than 11,000 kilowatt-hours per year when compared to the standard manufactured home. Right now, that's an average savings of about $1,200 each year or about $90 a month.
“We strongly encourage our members who are buying new manufactured housing to inquire with the dealer whether they qualify for the ENERGY STAR Manufactured Home Program upgrade,” said Barry Drury, Vice President, Member Services. “It’s free to you at participating dealers, and the members who are involved love it, because they save month after month, year after year, in lower electric bills.”
To be eligible for this incentive, new manufactured homes must meet the following criteria:
- United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Systems Building Research Alliance (SBRA) guidelines as an ENERGY STAR Manufactured Home.
- Primary source of heat must be a heat pump and meet federal minimum efficiency guidelines.
- Home must be all-electric.
- Home must be installed by the manufacturer on lines served by Blue Grass Energy.
Blue Grass Energy also has programs to recycle old appliances, offers rebates on new ENERGY STAR appliances, provides free energy audits and other programs to help its nearly 56,000 members to save energy and lower their electric bills. Our online home energy evaluation, BillingInsights, provides a powerful link directly to your monthly billing information to instantly analyze where energy is being used in your home.
