Next Wednesday on May 29, at 2:00 p.m. the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ (FDACS) Office of Energy will host an informational webinar regarding Florida’s Energy Rebates Programs.

FDACS says the goal of the informational webinar is to provide initial information about the program and seek input concerning the design and implementation of these programs.

Overview of the Rebate Programs:

The state of Florida is slated to receive approximately $346 million to assist Floridians in reducing the cost of energy by improving the energy efficiency of their homes through qualified energy efficiency upgrades, retrofits, and high-efficiency appliances.

Florida’s Home Energy Rebate programs consist of two separate and distinct energy efficiency-related programs identified below; however, the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ (FDACS) Office of Energy will administer them jointly to maximize the impact and opportunity for the benefit of Floridians.

Florida’s Whole Home Rebates

The Whole Home Rebates Program provides single-family and multifamily households with discounts for efficiency upgrades that are predicted to save at least 20% of the home’s energy use. This program will provide rebates for energy efficiency retrofits ranging from $2,000-$4,000 for individual households and $2,000-$4,000 per dwelling in multifamily buildings. Rebate amounts may depend on the amount of energy savings achieved by the retrofits, and maximum rebate amounts may double for retrofits of low- and moderate-income homes.

Florida’s Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates (HEAR)

The HEAR Program is exclusively for low- and moderate-income households (less than 150% Area Median Income) to purchase high-efficiency equipment. Like the Whole Homes Program, both single-family and multifamily dwellings qualify. This program will include a $14,000 rebate cap per household with additional caps on individual equipment types.
