About the Home Energy Rebate Programs
These home energy rebate programs will help American households save money on energy bills, upgrade to clean energy equipment and improve energy efficiency, and reduce indoor and outdoor air pollution. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that the historic home energy efficiency and electrification consumer rebates authorized will save households up to $1 billion annually.
The Office of State and Community Energy Programs (SCEP) is working to distribute these funds so that households across the country can soon access these benefits.
