South Carolina Electric and Gas (SCE&G) provides energy efficiency incentives to home owners in its service territory. The program partners with the national Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program to offer a home energy audit and energy saving home solutions through participating contractors. Homeowners who make energy-efficient improvements through the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program can save up to $2,500 for eligible improvements. A customer can also earn a bonus incentive of $400 for completing a Comfort Home Package which includes at least one measure from three categories of improvements. Individual pieces of equipment are also eligible for incentives separately from the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program. Applicants must be the registered owner of a separately metered, detached, or attached single-family residence where the product/equipment is installed. Rebate payments will only be made to the SCE&G electric account holder in the SCE&G territory. View the program web site for additional details.
