Applying for Incentives and Choosing Improvements
After the energy assessment it’s time to review your contractor’s
recommendations, apply for available rebates and incentives, set a
project budget, and choose your improvements:
Review Your Energy Assessment Report
your assessment, the contractor will send you a report including
recommended improvements to your home, estimated energy savings, and
- Call the contractor with any questions about the report and recommendations.
Find Rebates and Incentives and Set a Budget
determine which financial incentive programs you may qualify for to
help pay for the work. Everyone qualifies for grants, rebates, and / or
low-interest loans that can make energy improvements more affordable. Call your contractor with questions.
- Determine how much money you can afford to pay out of pocket for improvements
for financial incentive programs and low-interest loans. Call your
contractor if you have any questions about the process. Note that it
can take several weeks or more to complete paperwork and be approved.
Choose your Improvements
you have set a budget and determined eligibility for financial
incentive programs, work with your contractor to choose improvements
that fit your goals and budget.
- You do not necessarily have to
implement all of the recommendations at once. Some residents make
improvements over several years. Work with your contractor to
prioritize projects to do first.
