Blower-door testing shall occur immediately prior to the installation of any
air infiltration measures at every site. Post-installation testing shall occur
immediately following the installation of air infiltration measures at every
site
Pre- and post-retrofit duct pressurization testing shall be performed at
every site by Project Sponsors implementing the duct efficiency measure to
verify and record leakage sealed
Work schedules required for Project Sponsors completing duct efficiency
and infiltration measures in Single Family projects
Project Sponsors must provide a work schedule for Multi-Family projects
seven (7) days prior to measure installation
Incentive Reports may no longer be submitted the 1st 15 days of each
month
All installations must be submitted on an Incentive Report within 45 days of






CFL measure not eligible in SWEPCO HTR SOP
All ceiling insulation installations must affirm that an insulation
installation certificate was permanently affixed near the attic opening
An updated duct tool spreadsheet has been added to the database
Failure to complete prescriptive requirements will result in a total
Measure failure regardless of the CFM reading
Homes cooled with window air conditioning units exclusively must be
reported as “gas” heat. Electric space heaters are considered “plug-in”
load and do not make the home eligible for electric heating type in this
program (Air Infiltration and Ceiling Insulation measures)
The air infiltration Deemed Savings include an upper limit of 4 CFM50 per
square foot of house floor area pre-retrofit infiltration rate and this limit
will be enforced
All use of marketing, including social media and telemarketing, must be
approved by AEP
Different incentive rate for historically underserved measures
Different incentive rate for projects targeting historically underserved
counties
