Limited Time: Save Money on Projects
- If you have a house without natural gas, now is the time to improve your efficiency! We are offering triple rebates for the following efficiency measures through September 2023:
- Air sealing and insulation
- Heat pumps
- Heat pump water heaters
- Ductless mini-splits
- Smart thermostats
This bonus rebate is for customers who do not have a natural gas meter. (Propane customers are eligible for the bonus.) Participants must complete a home energy assessment before starting a project.
Rebate amounts listed here show the incentive before the triple bonus. (For example, tier 1 air source heat pump split system rebates are $1,500 before the triple bonus. They are $4,500 with the bonus.)

Take a Virtual Tour of an Epic Home
An Epic Home has had a home energy assessment and completed recommended upgrades. It also has an Epic Certificate that documents the improvements made and the Home’s Energy Score before and after those modifications.
Epic Loans Are Available
Finance efficiency or solar projects through Utilities with no money down and easy monthly payments on your utility bill.
Claim Your Epic Certificate
Following the completion of upgrades, Utilities can provide an Epic Certificate to showcase efficiency and solar investments, which can differentiate your home at time of sale.
Epic Homes for Rentals
Keep your rental competitive in the market, increase tenant comfort and retention and maintain your investment.
Even if you do not own your home, you can make it more comfortable and efficient.

Did You Know?
Rebates are available to insulate attics, exterior walls and crawl space walls, improving your home's comfort.
Closing crawl space vents and covering the crawl space floor with at least 6 millimeters of plastic can reduce soil moisture.
Shrubs and trees require less water than bluegrass, so it's best to water them separately.
