The City of Tallahassee Utilities offers a rebate of $1 per square foot (up to $2,000) for ENERGY STAR qualified new homes. Qualifying housing types include single-family detached, single-family attached, low-rise multifamily, and existing-home renovations. To earn the ENERGY STAR, a home must meet guidelines for energy efficiency set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Homes must be at least 15% more energy efficient than home built to the current Internation Energy Conservation Code (with Florida modifications), and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20-30% more efficient than standard homes. For homes where natural gas is unavailable an ENERGY STAR certified electric or solar hot water heater with an Energy Factor of 2.0 or greater must be installed.

TCheck the program web site for information on the step needed to achieve ENERGY STAR qualification, other program details, and to download a rebate application.
