How Rebates Save You Money
Rebates for making efficiency upgrades in your home save you money in more than one way! You save money upfront, and you continue saving for years to come.
The first way you save money is in the form of a rebate after you complete a qualifying update. Here are the efficiency upgrades you can make that qualify for rebates:
- ENERGY STAR® Smart Thermostat: You may qualify for $75 back.
- Insulation Upgrade: When you add insulation, you may qualify for a 20% rebate, up to $300.
- WaterSense® High Efficiency Toilet: 50% of the purchase price, up to $75, could be your rebate.
- Heating & Cooling Rebate: These rebates vary depending on what you replace. We recommend reviewing the rebate options online if you’re upgrading your heating and/or cooling system.
When you make efficiency upgrades in your home, the second way you save money is from that energy and/or water savings that you’ll see on your utility bill for years to come! For example, when you replace a toilet that is over 15 years old, you will likely cut your water usage in half, which also means you reduce the amount you pay for your sewer service!
Have you ever wondered why we’re rewarding you for being more efficient, and using less energy and water? We promise it’s not a trick question. When you are more efficient and save money, we all do! Our job is to make sure you have however much electricity, natural gas, or water whenever you want it. That means we have to buy or build enough resources to make that happen. If everyone uses those resources wisely, that’s less we have to buy or build – ultimately saving money for the whole community.
