Whole Home Efficiency

Earn rebates by taking the whole home approach to energy efficiency.

Our Whole Home Efficiency program can help you find projects that enhance your home’s efficiency and your energy savings.

Get Started

  1. If you haven't had a Standard Home Energy Audit in the past three years, you'll need to schedule one by calling 800-895-4999 (The Standard Audit costs $60). Tell us you’re calling to qualify for the Whole Home Efficiency Rebate program.
  2. Our program partner, Center for Energy and Environment, is available to help you sign up for the Whole Home Efficiency program.  To contact an Energy Advisor, call 651-328-6224 or email

  3. Choose a participating contractor to install your recommended improvements. Find more information here.
  4. Call CEE at 651-328-6224 for an inspection after all of the improvements have been installed. At the time of the final inspection, CEE will collect your receipts and then submit your rebate paperwork for you.


Call our Customer Care Center at 800-895-4999.


To be eligible, you must:

Once you have completed your projects, call The CEE to schedule your final inspection. At that time, the inspector will also install for you, at no additional cost, any of the following:

And after that, you could be eligible for even more rebates!

Bonus Rebate for Air Sealing

Talk to your contractor about air sealing work. The CEE will run a blower door test at your audit and again at your inspection. If the result is 25-29 percent better at the inspection, you can earn an extra $150 rebate. If it is 30 percent or better, you can earn an extra $200 rebate.

Rebates are issued after our partner, the CEE, verifies that all improvements were completed properly and your rebate paperwork is processed.

Energy Saving Tip

Create your own shade by planting a tree in a strategic location in your yard to block sunlight from pouring into your windows. It doesn't get much more green than a tree!

Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Install carbon monoxide detectors and annually hire a qualified contractor to inspect your home for proper ventilation.
