U.S. DOE Posts FAQs for the Zero Energy Ready Homes Program

Mar 16, 2023 BuildersGeneralProvidersRaters

The recently extended and reformed 45L federal tax credit for energy-efficient homes that RESNET has long advocated for includes a $5,000 tax credit to builders whose homes are certified by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Net Zero Energy Ready Home program.

DOE has posted a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that are now live on their website and will grow over time. These questions will focus primarily on program operations, such as how to register, and how to certify homes, as well as common questions on program requirements.

To download the DOE FAQs go to Zero Energy Ready Home FAQ

DOE has also posted a webpage on the 45L tax and the Zero Energy Ready Program, at 45L Tax Credits for Zero Energy Ready Homes

DOE has informed RESNET that it welcomes new questions for the FAQ website. If you have a question you would like DOE to consider e-mail the question to info@resnet.us and it will be forwarded to DOE for consideration.
