Energy Efficiency Rebates

The Town of Erie is excited to announce new Energy Efficiency Rebates for the remainder of 2023! Why promote energy efficiency and renewable energy? The Town of Erie is supporting energy efficiency for the following reasons:

  • Environmental Sustainability: Prioritizing energy efficiency means reducing the Town's carbon footprint and conserving valuable natural resources. Decreasing energy consumption translates to lower greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to a cleaner and healthier environment for current and future generations.
  • Cost Savings: Implementing energy-efficient practices and technologies leads to reduced energy bills. These financial savings can be reinvested in essential community projects and services, benefitting residents and local businesses alike.
  • Resilience & Preparedness: Energy-efficient homes and businesses are more resilient to power disruptions and less susceptible to energy price fluctuations. This helps give the residents the ability to cope with unforeseen challenges, including extreme weather events and energy supply disruptions. 
  • Long-Term Planning: Energy efficiency aligns with the long-term goals identified in Erie's Sustainability Master Plan. The Town's commitment to energy efficiency paves the way for a more prosperous and resilient future.
