Landlords: Get an energy audit for your rental property and earn an extra $200 rebate on efficiency upgrades

October 28, 2019

Is your rental property wasting energy and water? Find out with a free efficiency audit from EWEB.

Inefficient rentals are uncomfortable and costly to heat. They also waste energy, putting extra demands on the grid and producing more greenhouse gas emissions. Improving the efficiency of your rental with some simple upgrades can help reduce waste, attract and retain quality tenants and increase the value of your property.

EWEB's Efficiency Education Program will help you uncover the biggest energy and water wasters in your rental, and decide which investments make the most sense. The process starts with a brief walk-through of the property by an EWEB efficiency specialist. Following the evaluation, the specialist will provide a list of recommended improvements. This free program is available to tenants and rental owners.

Rebates and loans can help with upfront costs

Rental property owners can take advantage of EWEB's zero-interest loans or rebate programs for efficiency upgrades. This includes ductless heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, windows and insulation. And if you apply for a rebate within 45 days of the audit, you can take advantage of an extra $200 incentive to upgrade your property. 

Expanded rebates to support affordable housing

If your tenants qualify for income-based programs, you may be eligible for expanded rebates. In some cases, you could experience zero out of pocket cost to make efficiency upgrades for qualifying limited-income rentals.
