Austin Energy Rebate Program

How it works

Rebates are available to owners of multifamily properties to help offset the cost of installing energy efficient upgrades in tenant units and interior common areas. These upgrades — which can include smart thermostats, HVAC tune-ups, attic insulation, solar screens, and LED lighting — help reduce peak energy demand and consumption while also decreasing electric bills.

With Austin Energy Multifamily rebates:

  • Standard rebates are designed to pay up to 80% of the cost of the energy efficiency measures installed.

  • Eligible properties may complete the project utilizing in-house staff or an approved participating contractor, depending on the measures installed.

  • Austin Energy staff and the staff of a participating contractor will help you complete the necessary application and inspections and will provide support throughout the process.

Limited Time Bonus Offer!

    Multifamily Income Qualified Properties — normally eligible for an incentive of up to 100% of the cost of the energy efficiency measures — may now qualify for a bonus of 20% on approved out-of-pocket costs not normally covered by rebates.
    Installation must be completed by December 31, 2022.
