Tax Credits & Incentives


A HERS (Home Energy Rating Scale) for your home or new build is required in order to receive a tax credit.  It is the standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured. Most Extreme Panel homes with a properly sized HVAC system will typically receive a HERS rating in the upper 30’s to mid 40’s without utilizing renewables such as solar, geothermal, or wind power. Once you receive a HERS certificate, the qualified HERS Rater will then issue a federal tax credit of $2,000 plus any possible local incentives.
