PNM offers several types of incentives for residential customers to improve the energy efficiency of eligible homes.

PNM also offers the PNM Home Energy Checkup, which gives residential customers a snapshot of their home's electricity use and identifies opportunities to reduce electricity waste. The Home Energy Checkup includes installation of a programmable thermostat, compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), a low-flow showerhead, and faucet aerators. Based on the results of the Home Energy Checkup, a residence may qualify for additional appliance and cooling rebates. The $40 fee for the Home Energy Checkup is waived for customers who are at or below 200% of Federal Poverty Level.
