Georgia Community Fund Offering Rebates for Energy Efficiency Upgrades

georgiaThe Green Communities Fund, a program from the Georgia Cities Foundation, is offering rebates for energy improvements in structures in the downtown of any city in the state.

The rebate will be 25 percent of the pre-approved improvement costs, from a minimum of $2,500 to a maximum of $100,000. The structures can be commercial, mixed-use or multifamily. Projects that are considered for the rebates are reflective roofing, insulation HVAC, tankless hot water heaters, lighting, weatherization and others.

The projects must offer a minimum of 20 percent reduction in energy use and have a maximum return on investment of 10 years. They must comply with Energy Star, LEED or EarthCraft certification standards.

The Georgia Cities Foundation is not the only source of rebates in the state. Last month, Georgia Power awarded a $64,000 rebate to Krystal Company Restaurants. The company upgraded to LEDs at 55 restaurants across Georgia. The move may cut energy use by 2.8 kWh.
