Phoenix Green Chamber – Energize Phoenix

Did you know the typical Phoenix family spends about $1,900 a year on home utility bills? Unfortunately, a large portion of that energy is wasted.

A new program called Energize Phoenix is now available to help residents and business owners along the light rail corridor save money by saving energy.

The Energize Phoenix program is funded by a $25 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and U.S. Department of Energy grant received by the City of Phoenix in partnership with Arizona Public Service and Arizona State University.

The program aims to achieve specific goals – shrink home energy consumption by up to 30 percent, reduce commercial energy use by up to 18 percent, eliminate carbon emissions by as much as 50,000 metric tons per year, and retrofit 1,700 homes and 30 million square feet of office and industrial space for greater energy efficiency. Not only does this initiative intend to increase energy efficiency by transforming the infrastructure in the corridor, it will also educate property owners to become savvy energy consumers.

Free Home Check-Up Offer

Energize Phoenix is offering a limited time opportunity to receive a free home energy check-up for owner-occupied homes that qualify for the APS Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program within the Energize Phoenix program boundaries, a 10-mile stretch along light rail from approximately 44th and Washington Streets to Central Avenue and Camelback Road.

Home energy check-ups completed by October 31, 2011 by an approved Energize Phoenix contractor are eligible to receive a $99 home energy check-up rebate. The deadline for receipt of a completed Residential Rebate Match Form with applicable attachments at the address listed on the Residential Rebate Match Form is November 30, 2011.

Common energy efficiency projects include:

• heating and cooling system upgrades
• duct leakage repair, air leaks and sealing
• attic insulation
• shade screens
• solar water heater upgrades

If the energy check-up identifies money saving opportunities through efficiency upgrades, you can take advantage of Energize Phoenix incentives. Energize Phoenix will match most existing APS rebates. Homeowners who are low- to moderate-income may qualify for additional incentives.
