New Home Construction: Built to Save

Build It Better From the Beginning

When you design for energy efficiency from day one, you build homes that are easier to keep cool in summer and easier to heat in winter. You also build houses that are more comfortable, inviting and enjoyable for the families that will call them home.

With our New Home Construction program, you can earn up to $2,000 in rebates when you build to ENERGY STAR® standards. You'll also help us all work toward a more sustainable future for Michigan.
