The mountainous terrain of Utah has been known for it's National Parks and fantastic hunting for decades.  In more recent years, Utah has become one of the largest ski resort states in the United States.  Because of Utah's mountainous terrain and generally high altitude, there are many renewable energy incentives that qualify for rebates to residential home owners.  If you live in Utah and are looking at making some energy efficient home improvements, this can save you thousands of dollars.

Utility Rebate Program

Weatherization

If you are looking to improve the insulation and HVAC operation of your home, this rebate could pay up to .$30 per square foot of added attic insulation, and up to .$40 per square foot for sidewall insulation.  The insulation methods and materials must be listed as an appropriate weatherization measure by the sponsoring utility to qualify.

Electric Appliances

Update your old, energy sucking appliances and get a rebate in return along with the energy savings.  The rebates for eligible appliances are as follows:

Electric Heat Pump Water Heater: $75
* Electric Hot Water Heater: $25
Refrigerators: $20
Clothes Washers: $25-$50

* The electric hot water rebate is only available in homes that are all electric and use no fuel for heating or appliance operation.

Gas Appliances

Gas appliances have hefty rebates that can make a serious dent in the total cost of the energy efficiency improvements.  These rebates are as follows:

Gas Furnace: $300
Gas Boiler: $400
Storage Water Heater: $50 - $100
Tankless Water Heater: $300
Gas Clothes Dryer: $30
Gas Clothes Washer: $50 - $75
Windows: $0.95 per sq ft
Insulation: $0.07 - $0.30 per sq ft, depending on insulation type
Duct Sealing: $225
Duct Insulation: $250

If your home requires multiple HVAC systems, this rebate program limits two appliances per system per rebate.  In other words, if you have a large home with 3 gas boilers, only two are eligible for the rebate program.

Solar

The solar rebate program for residential systems is currently $2 per watt with an incentive limit of $6,000.  These systems must be grid connected to be eligible for this rebate program.  Warranties and installation that are applicable to the California Energy Commission guidelines also be adhered to to qualify for this program.

As with all rebate programs, you pay the upfront cost of the energy efficiency measure.  Your participating utility then inspects the systems to make sure they qualify and a rebate check is cut to you a few weeks later.  Not all utilities participate in these programs and systems have to be approved for installation before rebates will be issued.  To see if your utility participates in this and other programs, call your local utility or chamber of commerce to discuss your energy efficiency options.

      This is a great and simple explanation for what sometimes becomes a confusing rebate structure. Especially with solar your savings go a long way to helping everyone afford this truly remarkable technology- if you have the initial investment, trust me, there's no reason to wait.
