Georgia Power provides an incentive for home builders to construct new homes which meet ENERGY STAR guidelines. Through this program, builders constructing new efficient homes in Georgia Power's service territory, which utilize electric heating and water heating can receive a $300 incentive to help with the cost of having the home rated. The builder may choose the RESNET certified Home Energy Rater of their choice to rate the house. The rater must review the house plans and perform required testing at completion to qualify the house as ENERGY STAR.
All heating systems and water heating must be electric
