HERO Code

Earn cash back from Duke Energy for building energy-efficient homes

The Duke Energy Residential New Construction Program provides rebates of up to $7,500 for building more energy efficient homes

Through their Whole-House Incentive which includes two levels: HERO and HERO plus HERS score.

What is HERO code?

  • This is an optional part of the 2012 North Carolina Conservation Energy Code which have been designated as the most cost effective energy-efficiency measures to exceed minimum state standards by 15-20%. By meeting this code alone, you will be eligible for $750 as long as you meet the other eligibility requirements as outlined by Duke Energy.

What about a HERS score?

  • If you want to be eligible for $7,500 in rebates per house then the homes you are building will require a HERS rating in addition to meeting HERO code. This is where we can help you as Southern Energy Management maintains a RESNET Providership as well as a team of HERS Raters and Quality Assurance Designees underneath that. We will assess the plans of the house you are building and provide an Energy Summary Report which will include the information of annual kWh savings. Based on this data, you will be eligible for rebates at the rate of $0.90/kWh for up to 10,000 kWh.
