Certifying ENERGY STAR Modular Homes

SBRA's alternative compliance verification process for ENERGY STAR modular homes will end on December 31, 2018. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), with the release of ENERGY STAR Certified Homes Program Requirements Version 3/3.1 Rev. 09, has announced that modular homes permitted/sold after January 1, 2019 must be certified under the site-built home verification process. To earn the ENERGY STAR, a modular home must comply with all provisions of the Program Requirements (exit to energystar.gov website) applicable to the state in which the home will be sited.

This change only impacts modular homes built to state and local codes. The certification program for HUD-code manufactured homes is not changing. SBRA will provide further guidance to companies that were participating in the modular program. For more information, contact Gwynne Koch at gkoch@research-alliance.org.
