Rebates offered for flood-damaged rentals
Last Updated: 18:33 November 1, 2013
The rebates are available through Dec. 31 or while funds last. They apply to equipment replacement or upgrades, and the work must be done by contractors partnering with Energy Smart.
Energy Smart is a Boulder County partnership that helps make homes and businesses in local communities more energy efficient. SmartRegs is a Boulder ordinance that requires all rental properties in town to meet certain efficiency standards by 2019.
EnergySmart advisers can help property managers and owners with guidance through SmartRegs compliance.
"These rebates represent additional assistance for property owners impacted by the flood," said Elizabeth Vasatka, business sustainability coordinator for the city. "Consideration of energy efficiency and building best practices is most relevant and valuable during the rebuilding and replacement processes, and we want to support landlords in investing in equipment that will enhance property value and help them reach SmartRegs compliance."
