Save money on an efficient home. Get rebates to do it.

MTE and TVA have partnered to provide home rebates to you through qualifying home energy efficiency upgrades. This program is designed to help you reduce energy consumption by improving your home’s efficiency, save money on installation costs, and make you more comfortable. 

Home Energy Rebates Benefits

 

  • Get money back on your efficiency upgrades.
  • Lower your monthly energy bill.
  • Replace old systems that are costing you money by driving your energy bill up.
  • Enjoy better indoor air quality and increased comfort following certain upgrades.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint. 
  • Offset the cost of unplanned or emergency repairs or replacements. 
  • Upgrade to products with higher energy efficiency ratings.

 

How It Works
  • Step 1: Identify the home improvement you want.
    We recommend starting with a free Home Energy Checkup. MTE’s local energy service coordinator can help you determine which upgrades might qualify and give you recommendations to improve your home’s energy efficiency and your energy habits.
     
  • Step 2: Choose a contractor.
    To qualify for an MTE and TVA EnergyRight Home Rebate, you must use a qualified contractor from the Quality Contractor Network. These professionals are approved to help members with their home upgrades. We recommend getting estimates from 3 contractors to ensure you find one that meets your needs and confidence level.

  • Step 3: Complete the project
    Once your home improvement project is complete, your contractor will have 30 days to enter the job in TVA’s Residential Hub. 
     
  • Step 4: Claim your Home Rebates
    Once your contractor submits your job, you will receive an email with instructions on how to claim the rebate. You have 90 days to complete the rebate claim process. Once the claim process is complete, the rebate will be paid directly to you. Typically, you’ll see a check in your mailbox 4-6 weeks after you’ve completed the claim process. 
     
  • Step 5: Schedule a home rebate inspectionAfter your job is complete, an MTE energy services coordinator can come to your home to perform a home rebate inspection. These inspections vary based on the measures installed; however, the inspection allows for an Energy Pro to ensure you’re optimizing your energy efficiency and cost savings.
