All-Electric Residential Contractor Program

Residential secondary services that qualify as All-Electric residential services and are within a subdivision:

  • Qualify for a Benton REA construction credit, and

Residential secondary services that qualify as All-Electric residential service and are NOT within in a subdivision:

  • Qualify for a Benton REA construction credit, but
  • DO NOT qualify for the All-Electric residential program

Residential secondary services that do not qualify as All-Electric residential services do not qualify for a Benton REA construction credit nor the hybrid electric water heater incentive, must provide a conduit and must pay Benton REA a secondary service fee.

High-Performance New Home Incentive

This incentive goes to the builder of one or more homes that are built to save 10 percent or more energy when compared to a home that is built to current code specifications.

In order to receive this incentive, the builder must hire a third-party inspector, called a Rater, to evaluate the home and ensure it will save energy as projected. With third-party involvement, the home-buyer can purchase with confidence a home they know is energy-efficient and saving them money every day they live in their more comfortable and sustainable home.

This "Performance Path" is an initiative of the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (NEEA). Learn more at
