The Shreveport Energy Efficiency (SEED) program, offered by the City of Shreveport, is intended to complement and enhance the existing Louisiana Home Energy Rebate Option (HERO) program. SEED offers professional energy audit buy-downs and low-interest loans for qualifying retrofits of residential buildings. These incentives are intended to assist in raising program awareness, applicant participation, and diminish costs for improvements.
The SEED program decreases the major cost of the energy audit to Shreveport residents. Energy Audit procedures are performed by the HERO program. Measures which may be eligible for an incentive include air duct improvements, ceiling insulation, building envelope improvements and HVAC replacements.
