Rebates and Incentives

Residents

Energy efficiency improvements not only help you save energy and money but also enhance comfort and indoor air quality, making your home a healthier and more livable environment for your family. Even simple improvements can make a big difference:

  • Sealing leaky ducts,
  • Adding insulation,
  • Installing an efficient heating, ventilation, or air conditioning system.

Many rebates and incentives must be pre-approved prior to starting work.  Contact our office before you begin your project to learn more.
