Whole Home Energy Upgrades the more you do, the more you save!

Seattle City Light wants to encourage customers to take the next step in making their home energy-efficient and comfortable. In partnership with the City of Seattles Community Power Works (CPW) program, Seattle City Light provides generous rebates for home energy audits, and upgrades completed by a Community Power Works approved auditor and contractor.

Once a home energy audit is completed, homeowners are encouraged to complete weatherization such as, insulation and air-sealing, and other upgrades such as space heating, water heating, and windows. Homeowners are eligible for Seattle City Light offers bonus rebates up to $500 on top of existing rebates when they complete either the Tier 1 or Tier 2 Whole Home upgrades below.

Get Started Today:

The process starts with a home energy audit through an approved auditor. Seattle City Light offers a $200 rebate for home energy audits for customers who have electrically heated single family homes (1-4 units), and the homeowner pays a low $125 fee to the auditor. Auditors assess your homes insulation level, leakiness, and heating system efficiency. These audits lead to an Energy Performance Score (EPS) report that rates the current efficiency level of your home and suggests energy-efficiency upgrades. From there, you will be put in touch with approved CPW contractors who will provide you with bids to perform the work at your direction. Your bid will include an estimate of Seattle City Light rebates that you qualify for, including any applicable bonus rebates.
