Last Call For 2014 Rebates From Xcel Energy

It is hard to believe but 2014 is coming to an end. If you are thinking about doing a home improvement project, now is the time! Rebates available from Xcel Energy are about to expire and next year’s rebates could be lower.

As you begin to think about your home remodeling projects, don’t forget that Xcel Energy will help you cover some of the upfront cost. Rebates are available for many upgrades that help increase the home’s efficiency. You get rewarded for going green! Here are just a few of the home improvements eligible for rebates: (there is more information on Xcel’s website)

  • Installing or adding more insulation can greatly reduce energy bills year round. Xcel is currently offering a rebate of 20% of the cost or up to $300 per household.

  • If you are thinking about upgrading the appliances in your kitchen to energy efficient models you will see rebates for all of them! Xcel offers rebates on refrigerators and dishwashers. And if you have an old fridge, Xcel will give you money for your old one and will even pick up and recycle it for you free of charge!

  • If you upgrade your window or door weather stripping there is money waiting for you! Sealing those leaks can qualify you for some fantastic rebates.

  • If you upgrade your home’s lighting, you may also qualify for rebates. Xcel offers rebates for homeowners who make the switch to CFL’s. This can certainly add up if you are adding new lighting to your basement finishing project.
