The Home Energy Improvement Program (HEIP) helps Georgia Power customers reduce energy use, save on energy costs and improve the indoor air quality and comfort of their homes. Residential customers can earn rebates from Georgia Power for implementing and installing qualifying energy savings improvements.

In this program, there are two approaches:

Whole House

The Whole House approach promotes a holistic method of reducing electricity use through the installation of multiple prescriptive improvements. The Whole House approach is a three step comprehensive method which assesses all of the systems within your home.

STEP 1: ASSESS

A program contractor will use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and software to perform a comprehensive Home Energy Assessment to identify potential savings opportunities and recommend specific energy saving improvements you can make in your home.

STEP 2: IMPROVE

Customers then implement and install some or all of the recommended energy saving improvements identified in the Home Energy Assessment conducted in Step 1.

STEP 3: VERIFY

Once the recommended improvements are completed, a program participating contractor will conduct a follow up Home Energy Assessment to evaluate energy savings actually achieved and determine the customer’s rebate eligibility.

Georgia Power’s customers are eligible for incentives each step of the way. Customers are eligible for an incentive of 50 percent off the cost of the Home Energy Assessment up to $150.00. Additionally, customers with verified 25% electricity (kWh) savings after installing the recommended energy improvements are eligible for an incentive of 50 percent of the installed cost of those improvements up to $800.

Participation in the 2017 Whole House Home Energy Improvement Program is limited. Please contact 1-877-310-5607 for additional information.
