2015 Xcel Energy Rebates: Take Advantage This Year!

If you are thinking of making some home improvements this year, make sure to consider the 2015 Xcel Energy rebates available to you for making your home more energy efficient. So, if you are remodeling your kitchen, choosing energy-efficient appliances can qualify you for a rebate. Or, if you are putting an addition onto your house, adding extra insulation also makes the project rebate-worthy.

You can find full details about 2015 Xcel Energy rebates available on their website, but here are a few highlights to give you an idea of what you can expect:

  • Putting in an evaporative cooling system, which is more efficient than a traditional air conditioner, can earn you up to $1000 in rebates (for a whole house system). You can also get $250 back for a standard system, and replacing an existing evaporative cooling system qualifies you for rebates as well.
  • You can get a $350 rebate for putting in attic insulation, and $800 for wall insulation
  • Air sealing and weather stripping can earn you up to $160 back.
  • Replacing all of your existing appliances with energy efficient ones can bring in rebates for each one--for instance, $15 for a refrigerator and $70 for a clothes washer. Plus, you can have Xcel pick up your old refrigerator or freezer at no cost!

Beyond the rebates, you can also expect to have lower monthly energy bills. So it's really a win-win. Just make sure to read all of Xcel's rules and eligibility standards carefully.
