Home Energy Rebate Programs

Rebates will help reduce the cost of energy-saving retrofits.

The Inflation Reduction Act included two rebate programs for home energy efficiency and home electrification projects.

  1. The Home Efficiency Rebates will range from $2,000 to $4,000 for individual households and up to $400,000 for multifamily buildings for energy efficiency retrofits. The rebate will depend on the amount of energy saved.
  2. The Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates will provide point-of-sale rebates to low- to medium-income households for heat pumps; heat pump water heaters; heat pump clothes dryers; electric stoves, cooktops, ranges, or ovens; electric load service center (breaker box/electrical panel); electric wiring; and insulation, air sealing, and ventilation.

To support the rebate programs, the Home Energy Efficiency Contractor Training Grant will help train, test, and certify residential energy efficiency and electrification contractors.

Program status as of September 12, 2023:

On August 16, 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) was signed into law. It includes more than $200 million in rebate funding for Georgians to upgrade their homes with energy efficiency measures.

On July 27, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) released the specific rules pertaining to the rebate programs. Using these guidelines, each state must apply for the funding by January 31, 2025.

GEFA plans to submit our application to DOE within the next six months; however, DOE’s review of the application may take several months. With that stated, we expect the rebates to be available to Georgia residents no later than September 30, 2024.

As the timeline for the rebate programs becomes more certain, we will provide additional updates.

To receive updates about the availability of the rebates, please subscribe to our Home Energy Rebate Programs mailing list.

While the rebates are not yet available, consumers may be eligible for federal tax credits, the Weatherization Assistance Program, and other incentive programs.
