Okay, this isn’t an infomercial on how to get free money from the government, but there are many government entities and public utilities that still offer significant rebates for consumers and businesses that invest in energy efficiency projects, appliances, and equipment.
After all, who doesn’t like to get money back right?
There are a couple websites where you can go to research available rebates that may help you recover some of your project costs..
The Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency or DSIRE is a comprehensive source of information on state, federal, local, and utility incentives and policies that support renewable energy and energy efficiency. It was established in 1995 through funded from the U.S. Department of Energy.
The U.S. Department of Energy has a search tool that allows users to filter down through a database of rebates by state, economic sector, type of product/project and the provider of the rebate.
Hopefully these tools will help you save money on your energy related projects while lower your energy consumption and contributing toward a sustainable energy future.
