What's included in the 5 Star Energy certificate package?

The 5 Star Energy certification package provides a watermarked 45L certificate complete with unique certificate number and an active QR code to ensure document authenticity. Project location information, a statement on energy efficiency by the Eligible Certifier, the Eligible Certifier information, and the DOE approved software version used are also included per Internal Revenue Service requirements.


How It All Works

The process begins with one of 5 Star Energy’s Certified Energy Analyst’s performing a detailed analysis of your project to determine eligibility to claim the $2,000 45L credit. 5 Star Energy always uses U.S. Department of Energy Approved 45L software.


Then the process moves forward with the HERS rater verifying the project has been built according to the Energy Analysis guidelines. 5 Star Energy will then provide the certificate package to the project’s builder / developer, who then uses IRS Form 8908 to claim the energy efficient home credit on their tax return. A fee for 45L certification is typically charged by the HERS Rater to the builder on a per unit basis.


With years of combined 45L experience our team of energy efficiency experts and HERS Raters are ready to get started on your 45L project. Contact us today and see if your project qualifies!
