There's no question that making energy efficient upgrades to your home is a big investment. We get it! Fortunately, there are lots of incredible energy rebate programs out there for Colorado (and Wyoming) residents.
We keep tabs on the programs available to local families so that you don't have to. And you know what else? For many programs, we'll even do all the paperwork for you (trust us, you'll be glad we did!).
Energy rebate programs come in many different forms, from interest-free loans to energy audit discounts and cash incentives (free money!). And a variety of different entities offer them too.
Some rebates come directly from the state or federal government, while others are put together by thoughtful energy companies in the area. Either way, you get money back on your energy efficient upgrade!
