HELPS Home Efficiency Incentive Program is designed to assist the customer with the cost of installation for the most cost-effective measures recommended in a home energy audit. Those measures are shown on the energy audit report. We encourage you to proceed with the installation of those conservation measures that best suit your energy needs and are listed on your HELPS Home Energy Report.
– All new heating systems receiving an incentive must be ENERGY STAR® rated.
– Self-installation of insulation is not eligible for rebate.
General rule for cost-effective home efficiency: insulate and air-seal first. (Ask your auditor about how to find a qualified contractor.)
(Note: Audits are required prior to installation in order to receive rebates. Please read your utility’s application form carefully. Eligible measures may vary)
