The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is launching a series of six webinars which will take place from Nov. 28 to Dec. 12 and will focus on the Energy Star program for single-family and multifamily new construction.

The 2023 Energy Star Residential New Construction Partner Meeting Webinar Series may be helpful to any builder interested in the Energy Star designation, and Energy Star certification is now a key component to qualifying for the Section 45L tax credit for energy-efficient homes.

The 45L tax credit is allowed for eligible contractors who construct homes, including multifamily rentals, that meet the tax credit's energy savings requirements. The applicable amount of the credit is contingent on which set of energy-saving requirements the home meets and can be worth $500, $1,000, $2,500, or $5,000.

For more information about the tax credit, see IRS Notice 2023-65.

Eligible Energy Star versions by state and by the year of home acquisition are also available on the EPA website.

Attendees of the 2024 International Builders’ Show who are registered for the education programs will also have an opportunity to learn more about the 45L tax credits at a session held on Feb. 29.
