Rebates & Incentives through Georgia Power: Georgia Power offers many rebates designed to help offset costs to decrease power consumption. Having a Whole House Energy Assessment (energy audit) performed on your home is the best way to diagnose where energy is being lost in your home. Georgia Power rebates the homeowner 50% of the cost of the audit up to $225. The energy audit first begins with our Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified analyst using state of the art diagnostic equipment and software to perform a comprehensive home energy audit. We will identify and recommend specific energy saving home improvements that help you reach a total energy reduction goal of 20% to 30%. Once the recommended improvements are successfully completed, a follow-up assessment (test-out) will then be performed to measure the improvement to the building envelope and to verify any DIY improvements completed. Customers will then be able to receive rebates of up to and additional $2,200 through Georgia Power based on the energy savings percentage achieved.
Benefits of the Whole-House Approach with Georgia Power can include:
- Rebates up to $2,575 to help cover a portion of the home assessment and improvement costs
- Potential energy power and gas savings of up to 30%
- Audit performed by a BPI certified Professional Building Analyst
- Third party quality assurance performed intermittently to verify that the work is done properly
- More comfortable and healthy home with fewer drafts and hot/cold spots.
The Individual Improvements Approach allows maximum flexibility to make specific qualified upgrades. If the “Whole-House” approach does not fit your needs, you can still take advantage of “Individual Improvements” program where up to $700 in rebates are paid depending on the energy efficiency improvements made to the home. Depending on the improvement type, installation may be performed by a homeowner, a non-BPI certified contractor, and/or a BPI certified contractor. Once the individual improvements are successfully implemented, ECS submits the rebate paperwork to GA Power and the appropriate rebates up to $700 will be paid accordingly.
