TAVARES –- The Lake County Board of County Commissioners launched today, the GO GREEN GET GREEN energy efficiency rebate program for Lake County small commercial business owners and residents. Participants who GO GREEN by installing energy efficient products can GET GREEN through the new rebate program funded by an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG).
“We are very pleased to roll out this program for Lake County residents and small business owners,” said Lake County Chairman Jennifer Hill. “This is a great opportunity for homeowners and small businesses to increase their energy efficiency and we’re happy to provide a rebate to make that process easier.”
The Department of Energy awarded Lake County $2.8 million through the EECBG. More than $825,000 of those funds are dedicated to the GO GREEN GET GREEN rebate program to increase energy efficiency and create local jobs in Lake County.
For a complete list of rebates available, or to review detailed program information, visit www.GoGreen.LakeCountyFl.gov. Due to limited funds, the program is a one-time, first-come, first-served rebate program. All upgrades, with the exception of appliances, must be installed by a registered or certified contractor with the State of Florida with a qualified license and be registered as a licensed contractor in Lake County. The rebate is only available for Lake County residents and small commercial business owners.
Applications for the program can be downloaded and submitted, along with supporting documentation, online at www.GoGreen.LakeCountyFL.gov, e-mailed to GoGreen@LakeCountyFL.gov, delivered in-person to the Department of Community Services located at 1300 S. Duncan Drive, Building E, Tavares, or mailed to P.O. Box 7800, Attn: GO GREEN GET GREEN, Tavares, FL 32778-7800.
