The organization responds to false allegations that it won’t share HERS information with green building and energy efficiency programs.

There have been rumors spreading about a proposed policy being considered by the RESNET Board that would disallow HERS Raters from sharing HERS Index Scores with green building and energy efficiency programs. These rumors are patently false.
The RESNET Board of Directors is considering a general policy on who can access the data contained in the RESNET National Registry and for what purposes. Nothing in the proposed policy would prohibit HERS Raters from reporting a home’s HERS Index Score to any local, regional, or national green building or energy efficiency certification program. In fact, the proposed policy does not address how HERS Index Scores are reported to RESNET or any other organization. It is only about the data that is contained within the RESNET National Registry.
