Chances are that if you’re in Laramie County anywhere in the Cheyenne area, you’re a customer of Cheyenne Light, Fuel & Power. The utility has something that can help you save energy, save money, and even get rebates right off the bat for purchases. The Residential Energy Efficiency Incentives from CLF&P are not well-publicized, but they can offer you some big savings as incentive towards doing the right thing to reduce your impact on the planet.
The program allows for cash savings both up front and over the long term for those who purchase energy-efficient appliances. Everything from water heaters to furnaces and even refrigerators can qualify under the program, which gives cash rebates for purchases and lets you save on your utility bills over time with more efficient appliances too.
Rob Morris, the Energy Services Supervisor at Cheyenne Light, says that the program “is an effort to help our customers combat rising energy costs.”
Appliances aren’t the only thing you can get cash back for doing either. Through the Cheyenne Light, Fuel & Power website, you can find a qualified energy auditor to come to your home to do a complete audit, for which CLF&P will pay $150. To find out if you qualify, take the do-it-yourself online audit to see how your home performs compared to your neighbors, then look trough the list of certified Energy Star auditors in the area and schedule an audit.
Other incentives when replacing those appliances mentioned earlier range from $20 for Energy Star-rated programmable thermostats to $150 for installing a new Energy Star-rated natural gas heating system or $200 for a new Energy Star-rated electric heat pump or ground source heating system. Water heaters (electric or gas, tank or tankless) can also qualify as can many other improvements.
