The City of Knoxville's Green Building Incentive Program will begin tomorrow, September 21, 2011. The program will be administered by Knox CAC Housing and Energy Services. The goal of the program is to incentivize the Knoxville community to build or retrofit structures to create energy efficient buildings and deploy solar technologies. Rebates will be available for residential homes and buildings that house commercial or non-profit businesses. After completing energy assessments and specified energy-saving measures, participants will be eligible for rebates to cover some of the costs of completing an energy audit, purchasing energy efficient appliances, and installing solar photovoltaic and solar water heating systems.
