The Progress Energy is an Energy Star partner in Florida since 1997. The Progress Energy has a variety of incentives to help residents and businesses of Florida save money through clean energy and efficiency.
Some of the incentives and rebates available to Florida residents include home energy check, upgrade of attic insulation, duct repair, heat-pump replacement, window screens & film, high efficiency windows, wall insulation upgrade and reflective roofing. The program encourages a so called whole-house approach to support homeowners in Florida who wish to increase energy efficiency of their homes in addition to improving safety and comfort.
A Free Energy Check Florida
A free energy check is a free evaluation (performed online, by phone or in person) of your home’s energy efficiency. Participating energy auditors can provide homeowners with a free energy audit to identify energy efficiency upgrades in their homes. The contractors can further provide homeowners with an access to incentives and low-interest financing through Home Performance with ENERGY STAR in order to cut the costs of the energy efficiency upgrades. The contractor will use a number of tests order to produce an audit report. The report will focus on recommended energy-efficient improvements and associated energy savings. The homeowners will also receive a free energy-efficiency kit.
Florida’s Weatherization Program
State of Florida Department of Economic Opportunity administers Florida’s weatherization program. The program provides energy efficient cost-effective upgrades to residents of Florida that meet established income criteria. The program’s mission is to “reduce the monthly energy burden on low-income households by improving the energy efficiency of the home.”
Both renters and homeowners are eligible. People over 60 years of age, persons with disabilities and families with children under 12 are given preference in the program.
The most common weatherization services performed in Florida are insulating attic and floor, applying solar reflective coating to manufactured homes, installing solar screens, repairing or replacing inefficient heating and cooling units, repairing or replacing water heaters, air infiltration with weather stripping, window & door replacement, caulking and walls, ceilings and floors repairs.
