Comprehensive Incentive Structure

Comprehensive Incentive Structure

Featuring both greater incentives and dramatically improved energy efficiency, the comprehensive plan provides whole building retrofit projects with up to a $1,200 per dwelling unit.

Comprehensive project incentives are provided on a dollar per dwelling unit basis, with two tiers of incentives based on a project’s total points. The higher the tier, the higher the incentive amount per dwelling unit. The points range from 5 to 50 and have been assigned to each measure category in the table below.


40 Points Per Measure

(High Value EE)
30 Points Per Measure

(High-Medium Value)
20 Points Per Measure

(Medium Value EE)
10 Points Per Measure

(Light-Medium Value EE)
