Two Large Ohio Utilities Promoting HERS Index Scores

Sep 29, 2015

Columbia Gas of Ohio and AEP OHIO are undertaking a campaign to promote the construction of high energy performance homes through the HERS Index. The program “Efficiency Crafted” is based on the HERS Index.

The effort includes incentives to builders to build high performance homes that are calculated from the HERS modeling. The program is also using the RESNET multifamily rating guidelines for multifamily projects.

The Ohio utilities are also undertaking a marketing campaign aimed at supporting builder efforts to explain and promote their scores. To down load the consumer brochure on the HERS Index go to Columbia Gas of Ohio – AEP Ohio HERS Index Consumer Brochure

The Ohio utilities report that the average HERS Index Score of homes participating in the Efficiency Crafted program is 60.
