Tacoma Public Utilities - Windows Rebate

Windows Rebates

Overview

Installing energy-efficient windows can lower your utility bills and make your home more comfortable year-round. If your house was built before 1988, has electric heat and either single-pane windows or double-pane metal windows, upgrading will help conserve energy and save you a significant amount of money each year.

Window Replacement Rebate Details*

For Properties with Single-Pane Windows:

Residential properties built prior to 1988 may qualify for a rebate of $100 per window to replace existing single-pane windows with windows rated at .30 U-value or lower.

For Properties with Double-Pane Metal Windows:

Residential properties up to four units built per building prior to 1988 may qualify for a rebate of $50 per  window to replace existing double-pane metal framed windows with windows rated at .30 U-value or lower.

Rebates are available for residential properties with five or more units per building with existing single-pane and double-pane metal framed windows. View application here.
