Build your best home

When you work with a Wattsmart home builder, you can be sure you’re getting a higher level of quality, comfort and efficiency at the most affordable price. Participating builders receive incentives for including energy-efficient features and partner with RESNET® HERS raters to build above-code homes that offer you exciting benefits.
  • More comfort
  • Lower energy costs
  • Better resale value
  • Healthier air quality

HERS rating equals cost savings

HERS stands for “Home Energy Rating System.” It’s an overall efficiency score ranging from 0 (net-zero home) to 100 (standard new home). The lower the score, the better. A home with a HERS Index Score of 60, as an example, can save you an estimated $1,257 in energy costs each year. The Rocky Mountain Power New Homes program supports builders who produce qualified HERS-rated homes that have a score of 62 or below. Homes are rated by a certified HERS Rater and submitted to the program, incentivizing builders so you can enjoy a more comfortable, energy-efficient home.

A cleaner, healthier Utah

Did you know 16% of greenhouse gases generated in the U.S. are from residential homes? Your Wattsmart HERS rated home makes a difference by conserving energy and improving Utah's air quality.
