Start with a Home Assessment

Understanding where you can make updates to earn money-saving rebates starts with a home assessment. And you’ll love what you get out of it:

  • A comprehensive home review by an experienced professional.
  • Recommendations for upgrades to make your home more efficient and comfortable.
  • 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 assessment today.

One program. Two ways to save.

Whole House and Individual Improvements.

Low on time? No problem. Your participating Program Contractor will determine whether you’ll get more out of the Whole House Improvements approach or Individual Improvements approach and can make the upgrades for you. 

Whole House Improvements

Rebates: 50% of cost up to $1,150 per year.

Looking for a holistic approach? To qualify, your participating Program Contractor will ensure that you can reduce electric energy use by 25% once improvements are made. If not, no worries, they’ll let you know what individual improvements can be made that qualify for rebates as well. 

  • Rebate eligibility depends on Home Energy Assessment results. If your Program Contractor does not believe you can reach a 25% energy reduction then they may recommend you complete the program through the Individual Improvements approach.
  • Must be a Georgia Power residential customer.

The Whole House approach is accepting applications for pre-qualification; customers and contractors may apply online today. All projects require pre-qualification in the online application system to be eligible.

Qualified customers who complete the recommended improvements and achieve a 25% energy reduction are eligible for a rebate of 50% of cost up to $1,150.

  • Up to $150 towards your home assessment 
  • Up to $1,000 towards eligible energy efficiency home improvements
Individual Improvements
