Summary:

The City of High Point offers the Hometown Green Program to help customers reduce energy use. Under this program, rebates are available for newly constructed energy efficient homes, heat pumps, and electric water heaters. The $400 heat pump rebate is available to any residential customer whose electric service is provided by the city of High Point. In order to qualify, the heat pump must be between 1 and 5 tons, have a SEER rating of 14 or more, and be installed by an authorized/licensed electrical or HVAC contractor who has a privilege license to work in the City of High Point. The $150 water heater rebate is available to all City of High Point electric customers. In order to qualify, the water heater must be electric, have a capacity of 30 gallons or more, and be installed by an authorized/licensed plumbing contractor who has a privilege license to work in the City of High Point.

The Hometown Green Program also encourages customers to build or purchase a home which meets Energy Star Home standards. Qualified homes are at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to the 2004 International Residential Code (IRC) and they include additional efficient features that typically make them 20 – 30% more efficient than a standard home. Under the City of High Point program, a $500 rebate is available for new single-family homes which meet the program's specified requirements. The rebate form must be completed and returned to the address listed on this page.
