Expanded energy rebates available

Authored on

Residents can expect to see increased rebates available from Xcel Energy and CenterPoint Energy this year for things that improve energy efficiency, like insulation.

“If residents would like to make improvements that make their homes more comfortable, healthy and safe to live in, the best place to start is by getting a home energy audit through a program such as Home Energy Squad,” Sustainability Specialist Jamila Boudali said. “A home energy audit includes installation of energy saving equipment such as programmable thermostats and door weather stripping. These measures can also help residents save money on energy bills and reduce carbon emissions from excess energy use.”

Residents can opt out of any installation or test measures if they choose. After the visit, residents will receive a report and an opportunity to speak with expert advisors that can connect them to contractors and rebates.

Schedule a visit online at or by calling 651-328-6220. Free visits are available to income-qualified households. Visits are available virtually upon request. Languages available include English, Spanish and Hmong. Check the Xcel Energy and CenterPoint Energy websites for more information on available rebates.
