All NSP rounds encourage energy efficiency. NSP2 and 3 require adherence to Energy Star standards for new construction and gut rehabilitation. Energy Star standards do not change across grant rounds, however, Energy Star guidelines are updated from time to time. When rehabilitating or constructing a new NSP home, use the prevailing Energy Star standards based on when the construction or rehabilitation project began. Please refer to the Energy Star for New Homes Program Guidelines.
