Did you know that your energy company would pay for part of your new roof at your business?
Believe it or not, energy companies like Alliant Energy or Mid-American Energy offer non-residential property owners rebates to add insulation to their buildings to save energy consumption. Many roof projects, by default, often have insulation as part of their scope of work.
The steps to take advantage of these rebates are minimal and simple:
1. Figure out who your natural gas provider is at your property.
2. Call your provider to set up a free energy audit. A Hopkins Roofing representative can help with this. The audit must be done before any work can be done.
3. Working together with the gas provider and building owner, Hopkins Roofing offers different insulation levels that best fit the building and maximize the benefits of the energy rebates.
4. All parties agree on work to be performed. Then, the work commences on the property.
5. Once the work is completed, Hopkins Roofing and the building owner fill out the proper paperwork and turn it into the energy provider.
6. Rebate checks are mailed to the building owner!
Each energy company has their own rules and formulas for how their rebates pay out. In my experience, the time spent making a few phone calls and filling out a few forms is extremely well spent.
