In an effort to improve new residential home energy performance, Cumberland Valley Electric has designed the Touchstone Energy Home Program. This program provides guidance during the building process to guarantee a home this is 15-20% more efficient than the Kentucky standard built home. The standard built new home in rural Kentucky typically receives a 100 on the Home Energy Rating System (“HERS”) Index. A HERS Index Score of 100 means the home is built to only moderate levels of efficiency- generally the 2004 International Energy Conservation Code (“IECC”). Incentives of $250 or $750 may apply.
