The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Challenge Home offers an innovative solution for leading builders to differentiate their product from existing homes as well as minimum code new homes. The DOE Challenge Home label—the symbol of excellence in home building—makes it easy for consumers to identify Zero Net-Energy Ready Homes that are so efficient a small renewable energy system can offset most or all annual energy consumption.
DOE Challenge Homes are verified by a qualified third-party and are at least 40%-50% more energy efficient than a typical new home. This generally corresponds to a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index Score in the low to mid-50s, depending on the size of the home and region it is built.
