The City of Flagstaff provides rebates for energy efficiency upgrades performed within homes in the City of Flagstaff through the Energy Rebate Program. Appliance and weatherization upgrades provide significant energy conservation benefits to homeowners and help to reduce our community-wide energy demand. 

The Energy Rebate Program was started in 2013 to assist Flagstaff residents with costs related to the purchase of energy-efficient space and water heaters, and upgrading insulation and air/duct sealing. The program has provided more than $225,000 to over 550 residents in that time.
