Save on an Energy-Efficient New Home
New Mexico Gas Company offers rebates to contractors who build energy-efficient homes. To qualify, builders must install a high efficiency furnace or water heater or use a whole-home approach and receive a RESNET-accredited HERS rating.
New Mexico Gas Company has earned a 2023 Market Leader Award from the ENERGY STAR Residential New Construction program. This award recognizes our significant commitment and success in providing ENERGY STAR certified homes for families in New Mexico.
