Touchstone New Construction

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.
