Every new home built in California requires a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Rater to perform an energy analysis of the home’s design. To find a list of HERS Raters, click here.
Your contractor will upload a CF-2R and 3-R form to the HERS registry verifying that they installed the proper energy efficient equipment. Your HERS rater will then complete an on-site inspection and/or testing and upload a CF-3R form to confirm that you are getting the efficient equipment that you paid for.
The HERS Rater will share documentation of your home’s performance with MCE, BAAQMD, BayREN, County of Napa, and PG&E.
