The WISE Home Energy Program provides up to $750 in energy efficiency rebates for homeowners in Cullman, Madison, Jefferson, Shelby, Morgan, Limestone and Lawrence counties. A $350 rebate is available to homeowners who install efficiency measures that result in an energy savings of at least 20% post energy audit, and an additional $400 rebate is available for eligible project improvements. Only single-family, owner occupied homes are eligible to participate in the WISE Home Energy program.

A list of eligible improvements and additional program information are available on the AlabamaWISE web site. For more information, please contact either Daniel Tait for properties in the Huntsville area or Natalie Kelly for properties in the Birmingham area.

This program is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) [ BetterBuildings Program]. The DOE has awarded over $500 million in federal funds to more than 40 states, local governments, and organizations to administer local programs targeting a variety of building types. Combined, these local programs are expected to improve the efficiency of more than 170,000 buildings through 2013 and save up to $65 million in energy costs annually.
