Program Limitations and Requirements

  • Existing homes only. Rebates are only available for existing homes. New construction does not qualify.
  • Limited funding. Rebates are limited, not guaranteed and may be terminated without prior notice. Residential rebates are capped at $5,000 annually per customer account.
  • Self-installation. Customers that self-install products do not need to work with a contractor, but must pull required building permits from their local jurisdiction.
  • Participating contractor requirements. If replacing a heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system or installing attic insulation, these projects must be completed by a contractor on IID’s Participating Contractor List, unless the customer is self-installing the product. Visit www.iid.com/ParticipatingContractors to access IID’s Participating Contractors List.
  • Rebate frequency. A customer may only receive a rebate for the same product type once every five years.
  • NEM customers. Net energy metered (self-generating) customers’ rebate amounts will be determined by the percentage of their total energy usage that is not offset by their photovoltaic system. For example, if only 25% of an NEM customer’s energy is supplied by IID, their incentive is reduced to 25% of the rebate amount listed on the application.
  • Building permit requirements. Building permits are a requirement of your local jurisdiction (city, county, etc.) for certain projects, including the replacement of an HVAC system. Failure to apply for a building permit, when one is required, can result in a fine from your local building department. Call your local building department for more information.
