Homeowner Financial Incentives

From in-home energy consultations to comprehensive improvement projects with financial incentives, there are a wide array of programs and options available to every Nashville homeowner.



In-Home Energy Evaluation Program provides a comprehensive in-home energy assessment, as well as rebates and financing options to homeowners who choose to make significant investments in energy-saving improvements. For $50, homeowners can have an energy evaluation performed by TVA-certified auditors. Auditors also will inspect any improvements after installation. Homeowners who complete this program are eligible for rebates up to $500. For more information on scheduling your In-Home Energy Evaluation, click here.



Energy Retrofit Program provides low-interest loans between $1,000 and $35,000 to Davidson County homeowners who are at or below 120 percent of the area median household income. Through this program, homeowners also participate in the In-Home Energy Evaluation Program and make upgrades that reduce their energy costs by 15 percent or more. The payment on a $5,500 loan, which is the average cost to achieve a 15% energy reduction, would be $60 per month or less for a 10-year period.
