Austin Utilities offers incentives to its residential customers for the installation of energy-efficient equipment in homes. Rebates are available for both electric and natural gas equipment. Eligible equipment includes a variety of appliances, central air conditioning, heat pumps, boilers, furnaces, water heaters, lighting, ceiling fans, insulation, programmable thermostats, energy audits, and custom measures. Recycling rebates for refrigerators, freezers and room air conditioners are only available to customers who properly recycle their old working models. Austin Utilities will reimburse the customer for specified recycling costs if they have proof that they recycled their old unit and replaced it with an ENERGY STAR model. Applications for measures installed in the previous year must be received by March 31 of the following year. Rebates are available until calendar year program funding is exhausted.
