Utilizing Utility Rebates to Drive Energy-Efficient Roofing
Local utility companies and municipalities have offered rebates and incentives to customers for years, encouraging the adoption of energy-efficient practices to relieve the burden on the utility company and environmental resources. While most people are familiar with incentives for light bulbs and appliances, many utility companies also offer significant rebates and incentives for commercial customers to make upgrades to their buildings through cool roofing and enhanced insulation applications. This course examines how researching and incorporating these rebate opportunities into the design and bid process can help solidify an end user’s decision to invest in an energy-efficient system like membrane roofs.
- Identify ways in which incentive programs for enhanced insulation and cool roofing options help drive energy efficiency in commercial roofing.
- Provide an overview of common incentive programs offered by utility companies for enhanced insulation and cool roofing installations.
- Describe strategies for incorporating incentives and rebates into roofing projects in order to enhance energy efficiency and lower overall costs.
- Discuss common misconceptions about installations eligible for rebates and incentives.
