- Good for the environment
Energy saving features of an ENERGY STAR qualified home:
- Efficient heating and cooling equipment

Appalachian Power is now offering a $1,300 rebate to producers of ENERGY STAR Manufactured homes.
The incentives are paid directly to the home manufacturer to offset a portion of the difference in price between a standard manufactures home and one that is ENERGY STAR certified, enabling more buyers to qualify for a more efficient home. While the incentive goes to the manufactured home builder, the real beneficiary is the customer, who will reap thousands of dollars in savings over the life of the home. ENERGY STAR homes also are more comfortable, quieter, require less maintenance and are likely to have higher resale value.
