Rebates available to Glenwood Springs Electric customers
Glenwood Springs Electric offers rebates on a number of home energy-efficiency measures through its Sustainability Program. If you’re a Glenwood Springs Electric customer, these rebates can cut the cost of such upgrades as:
- Air sealing and insulation
- Heating and cooling systems
- Programmable thermostats
- LED lighting
- Efficient appliances
- Solar systems
Make sure to review the requirements before spending money on a big project. Some kinds of upgrades, such solar installations, require advance enrollment and a home energy assessment to qualify for a rebate. For other measures you can just purchase the item or have the work done, then apply for the rebate.
You may qualify for additional rebates through MEAN (Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska, Glenwood Springs’ new bulk electricity provider), Black Hills Energy and CORE (Community Office for Resource Efficiency). CORE also offers grants for innovative projects.

Start with a home energy assessment
As long as you’re looking into rebates, consider having a home energy assessment done. Energy Smart Colorado will do one for you at a discounted flat rate of $100. It's an affordable first step to learn which upgrades your home needs to be more comfortable and energy efficient.
A home energy assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of your home's energy use by a professional home energy analyst. The assessment will reveal the places in your home where insulation is skimpy or where outside air is leaking in. The analyst will also evaluate your furnace, water heater and major home appliances to determine whether replacement or repair is recommended.
You’ll get a written report after the analyst visits your home. The report will list all the measures you can take to make your home more comfortable, safe and energy efficient.
Glenwood Springs Electric's energy efficiency rebates are administered by CLEER (Clean Energy Economy for the Region), the nonprofit that also manages Garfield Clean Energy.
