Making your home energy efficient can improve comfort and indoor air quality. It may also reduce energy bills. The city is incentivizing the deployment of efficient, all-electric energy equipment for Denver residents. These rebates are available to you as an up-front discount from your contractor on their project cost. Contractors must submit applications, not homeowners. Be sure to inquire with your installer about other rebates on the market from Xcel Energy and the Inflation Reduction Act.
All rebate categories are open as of January 9, 2023. All projects installed after January 1, 2023 are eligible to apply for a rebate.
