AEP Texas Honors Three Rio Grande Valley Builders

AEP Texas Honors Three Rio Grande Valley Builders
  • Save

AEP Texas recently recognized three Rio Grande Valley builders participating in the 2020 AEP Texas High-Performance Home Program. The program promotes the construction of energy efficient homes that use less energy than typical new homes built only to minimum code.

Esperanza Homes received the Highest Cumulative kWh Savings Award, an award given to the builder who enrolled and successfully completed the highest quantity of energy efficient homes in the AEP Texas program in the Rio Grande Valley during the program year.  Chris Ryan Homes was honored with the Highest Single kWh Savings for a Single-Family Home Award for the home’s energy efficiency which scored above all the other homes enrolled in the AEP Texas High-Performance Homes Program in the Valley. A third award was presented to Villa Del Sol Construction, a new member of the program who has rapidly embraced the goals of energy efficient construction by committing to build 100% of its homes as certified energy efficient homes.

The AEP Texas High-Performance Home Program is a voluntary program that provides incentives to builders who construct verified high-performance homes and homes certified in the ENERGY STAR® program. Both types of homes are built to above-code standards and incorporate building processes and products designed to increase a home’s energy-saving performance and comfort, plus provide a healthier environment for its occupants—all while saving money on utilities.

To qualify for the program’s incentives, a builder’s home must exceed the kWh* savings above an established Texas Baseline Reference Home by a minimum of 5% or more.  Additionally, the home must also meet other elective criteria and be inspected and tested by a certified RESNET HERS Rater.

For more information on the AEP Texas High-Performance Home Program, visit www.SouthTXSaves.com or call Garrett Dorsey III at (361) 688-2211.

*Kilowatt-hours are the measure of how much electricity a home uses. Abbreviated as “kWh,” this is used in the program as the indicator of a home’s energy efficiency performance. Most utility providers bill customers based on the number of kilowatt hours used each month multiplied by a rate, which is most often shown as cents per kWh, to determine the utility bill for the month.
