Upgrading windows
is an investment that may lower electric bills, increase comfort and value, and improve the value of your home.

--The rebate for upgrading single-pane windows is $6 per square foot.
Replacement windows must have a U factor of .30 or lower. Patio doors must have a U factor of .35 or lower.

Adding insulation is one of the most cost-effective measures a homeowner can take to save energy and improve comfort. For eligible installations, Chelan PUD offers a rebate of 50 cents per square foot. Insulation incentives are available as follows:
--Existing attic insulation must be R19 or less. Customers must add insulation to achieve R38 or greater.
--For walls, there can be no existing insulation. Added wall insulation must achieve R11 or great.
--For floors, there can be no existing insulation. Added floor insulation must achieve R19 or great.

Customers doing the work themselves are required to take photos before and after adding insulation (where feasible), with the photos showing a ruler gauging the before- and after-depth of the insulation. These photos must be included with the rebate application.
Customers using a contractor must supply a contractor's Certificate of Insulation.

Insulated entry doors that are ENERGY STAR certified are eligible for a $40 rebate.
