Reserve Your Piece of $5 Million in New Energy Rebates Today

Important news! The Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy has opened the Virginia Home Efficiency Rebate Program. Approximately $5 million will be available.

Rebates are available now for up to 20 percent of the cost for the following eligible project items, up to $595 per residential property address:

  • Insulation and air sealing
  • Replacement windows and exterior doors
  • Storm doors

Applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until funding has been reserved.  Once all funds are reserved, additional applicants will go onto a waiting list in case all reservation funds are not claimed. The on-line application is available on the DMME website:

Applicants have 60 days to complete a project once a reservation is approved. Qualifying energy efficient equipment and items purchased and installed on or after March 26, 2010 will be considered for a rebate if all other eligibility requirements are met.

If you received a rebate for specific equipment and items under the previous Energy Efficiency Rebate Program, you cannot apply for a rebate for the same equipment or item under the new Home Efficiency Rebate Program.  However, if for example, you previously received a rebate for 10 windows, and want to install 4 more windows purchased after March 26, 2010, you can apply for a rebate for the additional windows that were not included in the previous rebate.

Virginia residents can learn how to apply for either rebate program on DMME’s Division of Energy web page:
