Partner Spotlight: NEEA’s Efficient Homes Pilot
Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA) began rolling out incentives and support for the Northwest Energy Efficient Manufactured Homes Version 2.0 (NEEM 2.0) program to manufacturers around the region.  The NEEM 2.0 shell specification is approximately 30 percent more energy efficient than a code-built manufactured home.

NEEA and BPA have created an offering for a residential New Construction Standard Protocol with methodologies and metrics that differentiate homes based on energy consumption to support performance-based incentives that utilities might use. More information is available at www.BetterBuiltNW.com.  

​Program Description
 

BPA supports energy-efficient new residential construction through a variety of offers for single-family, multifamily, and manufactured homes.

  • Single-family homes: The Single-Family New Construction Performance Path incentivizes energy savings based on measure life for new single-family homes that exceed state energy code for the state in which the home is built, by a minimum of 10 percent.
  • Multifamily homes: Incentives for new dwelling units that exceed Washington Residential Energy Code by a minimum of either 10 or 25 percent. Savings are based on Washington Energy Code; however, payments are based on the local state energy code.
  • Manufactured homes: Two tiers of high-efficiency manufactured home incentives, NEEM 1.1 and NEEM 2.0, and home replacement incentives when a new NEEM 1.1 or NEEM 2.0 manufactured home replaces one built prior to 1976.
