How the program works:

Understanding where you can make updates to earn money-saving rebates starts with a home energy assessment.

  1. A comprehensive home review by an experienced professional.

  2. Recommendations for upgrades to make your home more efficient and comfortable.

  3. 50% of cost up to $150 from Georgia Power towards the assessment.

Just choose from our network of participating program contractors who can schedule your home energy assessment today.

One program. Two ways to save.

Rebates: 50% of cost up to $750* per year
