Home Energy Performance-Based Whole House Rebates (State Energy Program)
Office of State and Community Energy Programs (SCEP)
To help State Energy Offices develop and implement HOMES programs rebating homeowners and aggregators undertaking whole-house, energy-saving retrofits.
Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements
This program is available to homeowners and aggregators. Restrictions apply based on the recipient's income and realized efficiency.
This program provides a unique opportunity to pay for whole-house efficiency retrofits. 20-35% building-wide savings triggers a rebate up to $2,000/unit or 50% of project costs, whichever is less (increased to $4,000 and 80%, respectively, for LMI households). 35%+ building-wide savings triggers a rebate up to $4,000 or 50% of project costs, whichever is less (increased to $8,000 and 80%, respectively, for LMI households).
This program can be used to increase the efficiency of low-income households, reducing bills, and providing weatherization that can improve the health and comfort of eligible residents.
Local governments should work with State Energy Offices to ensure rebate funds are seamlessly disbursed and able to be blended with existing non-federal incentive programs.
This program cannot be combined with other federal rebate programs. This program is administered via Home Owner Managing Savings (HOMES) programs, which fall under State Energy Programs.
