EnWise is proud to announce the federal government relaunch of the ecoENERGY Retrofit-Homes rebate program! This means homeowners can still enter the home energy audit program, receive $150 rebate towards their energy audit and qualify for up to $5,000 in federal funds. The federal program is still expected to end on March 31, 2012 but will be subject to funding availability.

Based on the thousands of Home Energy Audits we have conducted, here is an example of an average 15 year old home's most common Energy Audit recommendations and the associated grants and rebate incentives for completing the upgrades:
