Important! Rocky Mountain Power's planned changes to the energy efficiency program will become effective September 3, 2018. Changes include streamlining incentive tables to only include measure offerings and maximum incentive levels. Qualifications for energy efficiency measures going forward will be maintained on the wattsmart Homes program website. For questions or additional clarification, please email [email protected].

I see that under qualifications, the application notes: Home must have an electric heating system or electric cooling system serving at least 80 percent of the floor area. What does this mean?

This means that the heating fuel source for at least 80 percent of your home must be electric (i.e. baseboard heaters or an electric furnace), or at least 80 percent of your home must be cooled by a centrally ducted cooling system (air conditioner or an electric heat pump).

If I’m only installing insulation or windows why do I have to answer questions about my heating source and my home’s cooling source?

The Home Energy Savings program uses this information to capture data about just how much electricity your home improvement project will save. These questions are required so please fill them out. If you miss one it could lead to a delay in processing your application.

How do I determine my water heater fuel type?

Most household water heaters are either gas or electric. Look at the heater and see how many pipes go into the heater. If there are three one-inch diameter pipes and an electric plug, it is electric. You'll also see a reset switch. If there are three one-inch diameter pipes in the top, and one small one at the bottom with a valve to turn on/off, it is gas.
