MORE BENEFITS COMING SOON

This is just the beginning! In 2025, even more savings will be available through Home Energy Rebates. Lower and moderate-income families can receive up to $14,000 in upfront savings on clean energy upgrades for a home or apartment.

Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates

Provides households with up to $14,000 in rebates.
Covers up to 100% of costs for lower-income families and up to 50% for moderate-income families. Your state will determine which products are eligible from the following list — you can save up to:
$8,000 for an ENERGY STAR-certified electric heat pump for space heating and cooling.
$4,000 for an electrical panel.
$2,500 for electrical wiring.
$1,750 for an ENERGY STAR-certified electric heat pump water heater.
$1,600 for weatherization (insulation, air sealing, and mechanical ventilation products).
$840 for an ENERGY STAR-certified electric heat pump clothes dryer and/or an electric stove, cooktop, range, or oven.

Home Efficiency Rebates

All households are potentially eligible, with the largest rebates going to those with lower incomes. You can save up to $8,000 depending on your household income and project’s energy savings.
Qualifying for these benefits involves a property owner hiring a contractor to estimate projected energy savings. Higher energy savings will enable even higher rebate levels.

If the upgrade is modeled to save 35% or more energy, you can get up to $4,000 or 50% of project costs, whichever is less.
If the savings are modeled between 20% and 34%, you can get up to $2,000 or 50% of project costs, whichever is less.
Measured energy savings allow for uncapped rebates — the more you save over 15%, the larger the rebate — and builds in accountability for achieving promised savings.
Low-income households (earning less than 80% of the Area Median Income) receive double incentives, up to 80% of project costs.
