State Energy Offices, NASEO, and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) launched the Manufactured Housing Energy Efficiency and Affordability Initiative to improve access to energy-efficient manufactured homes across the United States. Initiative members are sharing best practices and collaborating to: 

  • Address the high cost of heating and cooling manufactured homes; 

  • Create lower-cost, public-private financing options for energy-efficient manufactured home purchases;

  • Identify opportunities for existing manufactured homeowners to replace their homes with more efficient manufactured homes, or improve their homes’ energy efficiency to lower energy costs; and, 

  • Improve the availability of affordable, energy-efficient housing options and promote workforce development opportunities in local communities where manufactured homes are constructed and installed.
