Residential Rebates

Infiltration Reduction Act Savings Calculator

Rewiring America now offers a calculator that shows the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) incentives (tax credits and rebates) available to help households save money on energy bills, improve energy efficiency, and reduce indoor and outdoor air pollution.

Residential Rebates Program

The Traverse City Energy Saver Program is designed to help our customers save energy and money. We offer rebates on a wide variety of energy saving products from LED light bulbs to furnaces and appliances. The program is designed just for our area to help you save money, save energy and help save our environment through your own conservation.

Be sure to follow the instructions on the application. All applicable residential rebates are listed on the application.

Receipts are required as proof of purchase, and in some cases the packaging, or photo of the packaging may be required to prove ENERGY STAR® certification. Please double check before throwing anything away.

A rebate check will be mailed to the person listed on the TCLP account and take 6-8 weeks to receive. If an account is not in good standing at the time of rebate approval, the rebate will be applied towards your TCLP account.
