Rebate Eligible Measures

Rebates are available for property owners, including rental property owners, who complete an energy audit conducted by a program-approved auditor/contractor. The property owner and their selected program-approved auditor/contractor must review the energy audit report which details a prioritized list of energy improvements/upgrades. After this review, the selected program-approved auditor/contractor will make a rebate reservation on behalf of the property owner to secure the rebates for the selected rebate-eligible work. Property owner must receive a rebate reservation confirmation before beginning any work.

  • Rebates are capped at 50% of the total installed cost up to the incentive level indicated; whichever is lower.
  • Rebate are subject to change and are not guaranteed until a rebate reservation is confirmed.
  • Rebate payments can take up to six weeks to be processed for payment to either the homeowner or the contractor.
