The Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility, in partnership with the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) and the Home Builders Association of Delaware, is offering rebates ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 for newly constructed homes that meet minimum certification requirements under the National Green Building System (NGBS), National Association of Home Builders Research Center, Energy Star, Residential Energy Services Network HERS or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating systems. The Green for Green program is offered throughout the state; however not all properties qualify based on their location. Specifically, with some exceptions homes built in Level 4 areas as established by the Strategies for State Policy and Spending do not qualify. The program web site contains detailed maps showing these areas.
In order to qualify for incentives, homes must be built by program-approved builders. Only homes with a fully signed contract dated on or after February 1, 2013 are eligible for incentives. Home buyers do not submit applications themselves; applications are submitted by the builder on the home buyer's behalf. Non profit builders are eligible to receive rebates through this program. No individual may apply for a rebate through this program more than once every 36 month. Funding reservations expire six months after the date the application is approved. Rebates are issued when the home goes to settlement and the home has been verified as meeting the certification requirement corresponding to the rebate amount.
