Just in Time for Summer! Rebates for Energy Efficient Upgrades

Posted by Sharon Rosshirt on Thursday, March 8th, 2018 at 11:59am.

Why is energy efficiency important?

Austin and much of the surrounding areas are filled a wild variety of homes, buildings, and structures. Some that look pulled right out the pages of a modern magazine and some that continually shine on the annual Weird Homes Tour. What do these properties have in common? Any property serviced by Austin Energy has access to energy efficient upgrade rebates! 

Did you realize that  Austin Energy offers financial rebates to residential and commercial property owners for upgrading their structures to be more energy efficient? A longtime leader in renewables, Austin Energy paved the way for the rest of the country to take the important steps forward in investing in more energy independence.

"Austin Energy operates an energy efficiency program for customers, including a free "energy audit" that helps to identify ways users can reduce power consumption. The utility offers various subsidies and rebates for efficiency improvements, including HVAC, insulation, efficient lighting, and photovoltaic panels." - Austin Energy

With the help of a free "energy audit" consultant, property owners can maximize their upgrade potential while minimizing the total out-of-pocket cost.  Not only can you bring your building into the modern age, you'll spend less over the life of the upgrades in energy costs and energy loss.
