Atlanta homeowners can save up to $2000 on replacement windows through the city's SHINE energy efficiency rebate program.

Atlanta has one of the more generous rebate programs that we've seen, so if you’re in that area, definitely check it out. Take a look at these statistics from the city:

  • An average Atlanta home has an estimated yearly energy bill of $2,295.
  • A properly weatherized home (which may include energy efficient replacement windows) can decrease that annual bill by $1,000!

Atlanta's program is called SHINE (Sustainable Home Initiative in the New Economy) and it began in August 2010. You can receive a rebate of 25% of the cost of installing replacement windows, for a maximum rebate of $2,000.

Rebate Can Put Cash Directly in Your Pocket

To get the rebate, you must first get a home evaluation from a Georgia Power Home Energy Improvement Program contractor. You and the contractor will assess the replacement windows project. Once the project is complete and you have paid the contractor, the contractor submits the rebate to the city for you – they handle the paperwork for you, isn't that great! Even better, the rebate is paid directly to you!


The program does not have a scheduled expiration date, but, like others, will end when then money runs out. Income-based assistance is also available to homeowners who qualify.


There are a few conditions that must be met to quality for the program:

  • The home must be in the City of Atlanta
  • The program applies to single-family homes (rentals OK)
  • You must have an energy efficiency assessment performed by a Georgia Power Home Energy Improvement Program Professional
  • Any work on the home must be performed by approved contractors
  • No rebates are issued until the work is completed

Combine with Other Rebates for Even More Savings

In addition to the generous rebates offered by the City, homeowners may also quality to receive additional rebates of up to $2,200 from the state utility, Georgia Power. And don’t forget the additional $500 federal tax credit for 2011 for replacement windows. All of these rebates combined could mean thousands of dollars in savings for you and your home!
