Energy-efficiency rebates available for Manitou Springs homes

In partnership with the Housing Advisory Board, the city’s Planning Department is providing $10,000 in funding toward the Energy Efficiency Rebate Program, which will give rebates to homeowners or residents via their water bills.

The funds can pay for insulation, air sealing, heat pumps, water heaters, high-efficiency toilets and irrigation equipment. This program will continue through the end of 2022, or until the budgeted amount runs out.

Potential applicants must apply for a property improvement permit and have receipts of purchased equipment. Residents can retroactively apply for a rebate, as long as they follow the above rules and the fixture was purchased and installed on or after Jan. 1, 2022.
