Xcel Energy

The Residential and Hard-to-Reach Standard Offer Programs provide incentives to "Project Sponsors" to install energy efficiency measures in Xcel's service area. Residential customers should contact a participating sponsor (awarded at the first of each calendar year) through the website provided. All payments to Project Sponsors are based on kW and kWh savings. Examples of eligible projects include:
* Ceiling, wall, attic insulation
* Installing energy efficient windows
* HVAC retrofit
* Duct efficiency improvement
* Lighting
* Photovoltaics and Solar Hot Water
Note that Xcel Energy provides the incentive directly to the Project Sponsor, who then determines what to do with the incentive payment. Charges vary by Project Sponsor and no incentives are paid directly to the consumer by Xcel. More information, including program manuals and contracts may be found on the website.
