Tax Credits and Rebates

Tax Credits and Rebates 

Many public power utilities offer their customers programs that provide financial incentives for investments in energy-efficient equipment and appliances, home improvements, and facility upgrades. This compilation includes many such programs but is not intended to represent all public power energy-efficiency initiatives.

 

Air Care used information from the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) Web site (http://www.dsireusa.org/) to start this list, then revised and updated Web site and program information and reviewed other sources to include additional utilities. We make no claim that you are eligible for the programs simply because you live within the region, county, or city. Please view offer details for qualifying homes and appliances. Contact the entity offering the rebates/tax incentives for additional information.
