From Becky Robbins, Rocky Mountain Power wattsmart program:
The Rocky Mountain Power wattsmart New Homes program has received approval for the changes proposed earlier this year with an effective date of July 1, 2015. Any home received on/after that date will be eligible for the following incentives in the table below, in addition to our existing measures<https://www.rockymountainpower.net/res/sem/utah/esnh/bi.html>, with the exception of dishwashers which are being retired. Homes received on/after July 1, 2015 will no longer be eligible for dishwashers. Please note the new submission deadline of 180 days to align with Questar, which will be allowed for those home submitted after July 1, 2015.
Also in effect for those applications postmarked on/after July 1, 2015:
* ECM Motors in 95% AFUE furnaces available with or without HVAC-QI (Rater or Contractor) Checklist. (Always considered with checklist when Energy Star).
* HVAC Contractor Agreement no longer required. (HVAC-QI checklist or Energy Star Homes previously required this. HVAC Contractor name must still be listed on submission form.)
* Homes must be submitted to program within 180 days of Certificate of Occupancy or Final Inspection Date. Exceptions will still be considered but must accompanied by an explanation about the reason for request. (All applications received before July 1, 2015 must still be within 120 days).
We are working on updating our submission form and hope to have it to everyone by next week. We are also in discussions with Questar Gas staff about scheduling our next rater meeting – stay tuned!
Let me know if you have any questions.
