Home Efficiency Rebate Program To Open on June 20, 2011
“Summary: Because of unclaimed and unreserved funds remaining from the first two rounds of the Energy Efficiency Rebate Program, approximately $5 million will be available for a new Virginia Home Efficiency Rebate Program to make existing homes more energy efficient. Energy efficiency improvements include upgrading certain heating equipment, adding insulation, replacing leaky windows, and making other improvements to existing homes that reduce energy consumption and utility costs. Under this new program, homeowners will be eligible to reserve funds for rebates for 20 percent of the costs of qualifying energy conserving products and services, up to $595. Energy audits will be rebated for the cost of the audit, up to $250.
The application process for the home efficiency rebates will be opened at 12 noon on June 20, 2011. We will accept applications on a first-come, first-served basis until the funding has been reserved. A waiting list will also be created, and applicants will be placed on that list in the order in which they are received. As approved rebates are redeemed and paid, additional funds from unclaimed rebates will allow us to approve requests on the wait list over the next few months.
Energy efficient equipment and items purchased and installed on or after March 26, 2010 will be eligible for the rebate if they meet all other eligibility requirements.
If you received a rebate for specific equipment and items under the previous Energy Efficiency Rebate Program, you cannot apply for a rebate for the same equipment or item under the new Home Efficiency Rebate Program. However, if for example, you previously received a rebate for 10 windows, and want to install 4 more windows purchased after March 26, 2010, you can apply for a rebate for the additional windows that were not included in the previous rebate.
