Austin Energy Green Building (AEGB) works with Extended Area Raters to administer single family ratings for projects outside of the Austin Energy service area. Extended Area Raters offer builder support, inspections, and compliance reviews of program credits. They also submit documentation to AEGB for review and certification. Many offer additional support services, such as energy modeling or performance testing.

  • Fees — Extended Area Rating fees are market-driven based on project location, size, and complexity.
  • Area — The extended rating area includes 27 neighboring counties in Climate Zones 2.2 and 3.1, east of the Moist/Dry Line and west of the Brazos River. It does not include Bexar County, which is in Build Green San Antonio’s rating area.
