Here a breakdown of Atlanta's best HVAC and energy rebates and discounts
Georgia Power rebates and discounts
Georgia Power currently offers various rebate programs for HVAC services and energy efficiency upgrades. Basically, you book an appointment with a participating contractor (you know, like PV!). After the service is performed, we submit the documentation to get you a discount.
Important: Most rebates provide "up to" a certain dollar amount. Your rebate might be less than the maximum possible rebate depending on the nature of the service and the equipment involved. And yes, you've got to be a Georgia Power customer.
