In another effort to help our community become more energy efficient, Shelby Energy offers the Touchstone Energy Home Program. A Touchstone Energy® Home is designed and built to be energy efficient and economical, as well as comfortable. Homes are built by a set of standards developed by electric cooperatives and can truly help home owners have lower electric bills.
The Touchstone Energy Home Program provides guidance during the building process to guarantee a home that is much more efficient than the standard Kentucky home. To qualify, the participating single-family home must be located in the Shelby Energy service area and meet the program guidelines following one of the three paths of approval.
Members must contact Shelby Energy prior to beginning a project, and will be subject to periodic inspections throughout the building process. The following is a list of incentives that members can receive if they follow a specific inspection path.
Prescriptive Path: Shelby Energy will provide an incentive of $750.00 to members that build a new home to meet the requirements of the Perspective Path checklist.
Performance Path Level #1: Shelby Energy will provide an incentive of $250.00 to members that build a home to meet the requirements of the Performance Path Level #1.
Performance Path Level #2: Shelby Energy will provide an incentive of $750.00 to members that build a home to meet the requirements of the Performance Path Level #2.
