  1. How do I know if I am eligible for available incentives?

  3. What if only one of my utilities is part of the Efficiency UNITED collaborative?

    You may still apply for rebates related to the Efficiency UNITED participating utility’s programs.

  4. What if the item I installed is not available through one of my utility’s programs?

    If you have installed an item but you are unable to find a related residential application or rebate amount for this item it is likely there is no incentive available.

  7. Why is Efficiency UNITED providing energy efficient rebates?

    Michigan Public Act 295 was passed into legislation in October 2008 to promote the development of clean energy, renewable energy and energy optimization through the implementation of standards that will cost-effectively:

    • Diversify the current resources (petroleum, nuclear, natural gas and coal) used to meet the energy needs of Michigan consumers
    • Provide greater energy security through the use of indigenous energy sources available in Michigan
    • Encourage private investment in renewable energy (biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, kinetic, etc.) and energy efficiency
    • Provide improved air quality and other benefits to consumers in Michigan
