Atlanta Replacement Window Rebate Program
Rebates up to $2000 Available to Atlanta Homeowners
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
- 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
