Home Improvements Going On??

ARC Electric Company rebate photoDid you know that you may be eligible for rebates and incentives if you are purchasing energy saving appliances?
I had no clue until I started doing a little research; Google is such a great tool! I found a few sites that may can help you – but I suggest doing more research on your own(every situation and case may be different). It looked like some towns or cities may offer incentives as well. Also, you may be eligible for federal tax credits. The sites I found helpful are below.
Energy Star offers a “rebate finder” that seemed fairly easy to navigate. CLICK HERE to see if you qualify for any rebates. It does look like they have a database and are pulling rebates from all over the country, so search and see if your electric company, city or town is showing up.
Duke Energy offers a Smart Saver program. CLICK HERE to learn more about this great program!
Piedmont Natural Gas offers a North Carolina Rebate Program, check them out by CLICKING HERE
I was truly surprised to see how many different programs are out there. So, do your research…it may put some money back in your pocket!
