Austin Energy offers incentives to its residential customers to encourage the use of energy efficient equipment and measures through the "Power Partner Program." Rebates are available for qualified HVAC equipment, weatherization improvements, smaller appliances, and technology upgrades through an energy star rebate program. A winter bonus rebate is also available on certain HVAC improvements. Customers may also receive the Home Performance Bonus Rebate up to $2,400 when they install a new air conditioning unit or heat pump and perform the following weatherization measures listed, if needed for low-to-moderate income residents:

  • Install additional attic insulation
  • Repair leaking AC ducts and repairs
  • Sealing of home envelope
  • Solar Screens
  • Window Air Conditioner Replacements
  • Caulk around plumbing under sinks
  • Weather-strip doors
  • Install Low-E windows, solar screens, or awnings (to windows in direct sun)
  • Air FIltration
  • Safety Equipment (Fire/Carbon Monoxide)
  • High Efficiency Lighting
  • Water Conservation Efforts

To take advantage of the weatherization rebates, customers must first have an energy audit performed on homes. Energy audits are not required for the HVAC rebates. Mobile homes or manufactured homes are eligible for rebates on new air conditioners only. Other energy efficiency improvements cannot be rebated for these dwellings due to construction code differences. Contact Austin Energy or visit the program web site for further requirements and guidelines.
