Rater Requirements

  • HERS raters must complete a program participation agreement in order to submit homes and receive incentives through this program.
  • Submissions to this program must be completed and reported by an eligible and certified HERS rater.
  • HERS raters must remain in good standing, and maintain a “Passing” quality assurance score, to submit homes to the program.
  • All submissions of incentive and participation applications for this program will be through the approved online submission process.
  • Incentive applications will be made by the HERS rater on behalf of the builder via the Compass tracking system, which will accept uploads of energy models and calculate the associated savings and incentive value.
  • The program will verify quarterly that each home submitted to the program by participating Raters has also been submitted to their HERS provider to meet all of RESNET’s national standards. This process ensures that participating raters are undergoing not only program QA, but QA as required by their Accredited HERS Provider Agreements.
