The City of Decatur, through the DecaturWISE program, offers rebates to homeowners who make energy efficient upgrades to participating residences. DecaturWISE rebates compliment Georgia Power’s Home Energy Improvement Program, which offers up to $2,200 in rebates. The City of Decatur provides an additional rebate of up to $1,000 for efficiency upgrades and assists residential customers in increasing the comfort of homes. First, customers must schedule a comprehensive home energy analysis to determine areas of improvement. Rebates are then provided for corresponding improvements and upgrades which save energy. Residents should contact an approved contractor to schedule a home energy audit and receive upgrade recommendations. Typically, the most effective measures under the program are insulation, duct sealing and air infiltration upgrades. Contact the City of Decatur or an eligible contractor regarding technologies or measures not listed on the program web site. View and follow all program requirements in order to receive a rebate.
