Touchstone Energy Home
We all dream of building a home that fits our unique tastes and special needs. We also dream of a comfortable budget and a secure financial future. Both can be achieved by building a Touchstone Energy Home, which is based on Energy Star standards.
Clark Energy understands that the real cost of owning a home isn’t what you pay in construction costs, but what you pay each month to operate your home. We want to help you cut those costs, improve your level of comfort, and give you a better return on your investment.
By combining superior quality construction standards with the most energy-efficient heating and cooling systems available, you’ll get the home of your dreams and up to 30 percent in energy savings every year for as long as you live in your home. Added bonuses include stable temperatures, better indoor humidity control, reduced drafts, environmentally friendly, and increased property value.
If you build a Touchstone Energy Home meeting all specifications required and installing a geothermal system or a high-efficiency heat pump, you may qualify for a incentive of $250-$750. Please contact our office if you are considering building a Touchstone Energy Home. An application form must be completed early in the building process and a pre-drywall certification must be done by our energy advisor in order for your home to qualify.
A blower door test is administered after the home is built to verify that the home meets the required standards before it is eligible for the rebate.

As of January, 2015, if you furnish your Touchstone Energy Home with ENERGY STAR rated appliances (refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, clothes washer, heat pump water heater) you could qualify for additional rebates of $50 – $300 depending on type of appliance.
