The final Parade of Homes entry deadline is coming up on February 28 with an entry fee of $1,595. But builders have the opportunity to save $1,000 on that entry fee by submitting a home in the energy efficiency category.
Duke Energy Progress is sponsoring the Energy Efficiency Category and they have generously offered an incentive* to the first four builders who submit a home in the energy efficiency category. The first and second builder to enter the category will each receive $1,000 off their Parade of Homes entry fee. The third and fourth builders to enter the category will each receive $500 off their Parade of Homes entry fee.
