Residents also get great deals for home energy assessments through EnergySmart
 
Boulder County, Colo. – A new round of rebates for energy efficiency upgrades is now available to homes in Longmont. Residents are also eligible for discounted home energy assessments. These offerings assist homeowners in identifying the most cost-effective home improvement opportunities in order to save energy, money and time.
 
Rebates are available for projects that can keep the heat out this summer, including insulation and air sealing around the attic, basements and walls, whole-house evaporative coolers, whole-house fans and efficient central air conditioning units. Tune-ups of AC units may also qualify for rebates.
 
"Before the EnergySmart improvements in my tri-level home, the upstairs would get so hot,” said Leslie Irwin, Longmont resident and EnergySmart customer. "Now, the upstairs is barely warmer than the downstairs, even on the hottest days! My house has definitely been more comfortable."
 
  • What: Discounted home energy assessment for $70 (value $135) and up to $600 in combined Longmont and EnergySmart for energy efficiency rebates
  • Who: Residents of Longmont who are Longmont Power & Communications customers
  • When:  New rebates are available for upgrades completed on or after July 15, in addition to existing rebates through EnergySmart
  • Details: To be eligible for the Longmont rebates, residents must complete a home energy   assessment and speak with an EnergySmart Advisor – who will connect residents with   qualified contractors – before beginning any upgrades.
 
Rebate funding can be combined with low-interest Elevations Energy Loans to fully fund energy-related upgrades. Rebate funds will be available through the end of 2013, or until funds are expended.
 
Interested residents can find more information by calling an Energy Advisor at 303-544-1000, or by visiting www.EnergySmartYES.com.
 
Advisors can assist with rebate applications, prioritizing projects, finding qualified contractors and more. EnergySmart has already assisted more than 10,700 homes throughout Boulder County. EnergySmart provides a full suite of services to help homes and businesses in all Boulder County communities identify valuable energy-saving opportunities and assist them through the energy upgrade process.
 
The funding for these offerings is made possible by EnergySmart and the City of Longmont. EnergySmart and Longmont Power & Communications just announced the launch of these discounted home energy assessments and new home rebates funded by the sustainability matching grant awarded to the City of Longmont. The City of Longmont and Boulder County are each providing $15,000. The Sustainability Matching Grant was established earlier this year to support sustainability initiatives within Boulder County communities.
