Save with BuildSmart®

Building a new home is a major investment. Incorporate the best energy-saving technology into your home with BuildSmart, a higher standard in new home energy efficiency. Prior to construction, reach out to your builder and find out if they are on the Participating Builders list.

BuildSmart is our energy-efficient new home certification program. Here's how it works:       

  • BuildSmart homes are certified by FPL to be built to a higher standard of energy efficiency.
  • BuildSmart homes save up to 30 percent on energy bills, compared with homes that simply comply with the Florida building code.
  • Our program specialist partners with your builder to plan and verify your new home's energy-efficient upgrades prior to occupancy.

Criteria for BuildSmart Certification:

The Florida Energy Code requires every home to have a minimum Home Energy Score (HES) of 100. BuildSmart homes are targeted to exceed the HES score by a minimum of 10% resulting in a HES score of 90 or lower.
