New Construction Rebates


Rebates for commercial & residential projects

Construction plans

Commercial new construction

Commercial new construction incentives are available to projects which will utilize Vectren electric service.

Through our commercial program, we provide Energy Design Assistance (EDA) services and financial incentives to support architects, engineers, and building owners who optimize energy savings to reduce operating costs in new construction projects that go beyond Indiana energy code. The program employs an energy efficiency strategy that fosters a partnership with the project's design team starting during the conceptual design phase. To learn more or find the right incentive approach for your project, contact us at


About commercial new construction

Who is eligible?

Any commercial/industrial building that will have future electric service through Vectren Energy Delivery of Indiana will typically qualify.

What is covered?

Rebates are available on systems and equipment that operate more efficiently than code requirements. Eligible participants may also receive energy design assistance, energy modeling and additional rebates if participation occurs during design phase.

Why participate?

Apart from rebates, you will be provided an energy assessment report that will detail opportunities, costs, energy savings, incentives and simple payback periods.

Residential new construction

Builders and contractors can earn cash rebates by constructing new, energy-efficient homes which achieve a certain Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index Score, which is a rating of energy efficiency. View the program fact sheet (PDF) to learn more.

Please review all program requirements (PDF) before applying for rebates.
