Reduce the amount of the sun's heat that enters your home, increase your comfort, and lower your energy costs by installing energy-efficient replacement windows, window film or screens on your home.
Duke Energy will pay up to $250 when you upgrade to energy-efficient windows or make your existing windows more energy efficient.
Duke Energy offers rebates for:
Professionally installed energy-efficient windows eliminate hot spots in your house, reduce outside noise and protect your walls and furniture from fading.
These look similar to the traditional screens they replace, and do a much better job of keeping your house cool while keeping bugs out.
Window film, available at home improvement stores, can be a simple do-it-yourself project that pays big dividends in reduced glare, added daytime privacy and lower indoor temperatures.
You may qualify for only one of the window rebates, not all three (i.e., if you replace your windows, you cannot also qualify for a rebate for window screen or window film).

High-performance windows help reduce the amount of the sun's heat that enters your home and offers the following benefits:
Duke Energy pays $1 per square foot of window space up to $250 toward the cost of installing high-performance windows in your home.
Installed windows must have a solar heat gain coefficient of less than or equal to 0.50 and a U-value of less than or equal to 0.75.
Window film must have a shading coefficient of less than or equal to 0.45 or a solar heat gain coefficient of less than or equal to 0.40. It must be installed on all windows facing east, west and south. Window film may be self-installed and is a great do-it-yourself project.
Window screens can be installed by any contractor and, like window film, must have a shading coefficient of less than or equal to 0.45 or a solar heat gain coefficient of less than or equal to 0.40. Screens must be installed on all windows facing east, west and south.
