Play associated audio

As of today, Virginia homeowners can apply for rebates for energy efficient improvements to their heating and air conditioning, window replacements, insulation and programmable thermostats.

The application must be approved by the Residential Energy Efficiency Rebate Program being run by the state's department of mines, minerals and energy. A total of $7 million has been earmarked for the residential program. Once work is completed, successful applicants will have to provide follow-up documentation.

Homeowners will be eligible for up to 20 percent of the cost of up to $2,000 per household. They may also be eligible for as much as $250 toward the cost of an energy audit. There is a separate program for businesses.
