The primary objective of these programs is to achieve cost-effective reductions in peak demand. Additional objectives of the programs are to:
encourage private sector delivery of energy efficiency products and services,
achieve customer energy and cost savings,
significantly reduce barriers to participation by streamlining program procedures, and
encourage participation by a wide range of service providers.
Participating Project Sponsors market their services to customers and reach an agreement on which measures to be installed, the terms of the sale, price and any other issues. A customer then signs the Host Customer Agreement and Acknowledgement form. Upon installation, a customer may be selected as part of a random sample of sites to be inspected or surveyed by the Texas Evaluation, Measurement and Verification contractor. Residential incentives are available for reductions in peak demand (kilowatts (kW)) and energy consumption (kilowatt-hours (kWh)). Visit the program web site for more information.

The goal of the Program is to create a sustainable market that leads to:
a continuous supply of High-Performance and ENERGY STAR-certified homes,
increased consumer demand and perceived value of High-Performance and ENERGY STAR-certified homes, and
