Utility Rebates

Additional Incentives for Energy Efficiency Improvements and Renewable Energy Investments

BACKGROUND

Utility companies, government agencies and other organizations offer a variety of rebates as well as tax credits, abatements, low-interest financing and other incentives to support energy efficiency, encourage the use of renewable energy sources, and support efforts to conserve energy and lessen pollution. These incentives provide a wealth of money to help fund energy reduction initiatives and offset the cost of energy efficient capital investments.

Most rebate programs that support energy efficiency are administered by utilities. Identifying available utility rebates and other incentives can be a daunting task and completing the necessary paperwork at project completion can be equally difficult. Oftentimes, these incentives must be applied for prior to project commencement and may require negotiation with the utility company.

The majority of rebate programs that support renewable energy are administered by municipal utilities, states agencies, and electric cooperatives. These programs commonly provide funding for solar water heating as well as solar and wind energy systems, such as photovoltaics and wind turbines.

HOW WE CAN HELP
