Energy Efficiency Improvements for Florida and Carolina Homes – Can You Get These Rebates?

Making energy efficient improvements has dramatically increased our enjoyment in the homes in which we have lived (over the years, it’s been a few) – and has lowered the bills, too.

So why wouldn’t you make energy efficiency improvements to your home, too? Probably the cost and the money that you would need to spend, right?

Old HomeWell, happily there are ways to make your home more energy efficient, more enjoyable during winter and summer months, and end up saving you money in the long run. We were shocked to see what kind of rebates are available through your own power company sometimes.

Here’s just a few money-saving features from power companies in the South. Does your power company offer energy improvement savings, too? Please let us know!
