Energy Edge Rebate Program

The Energy Edge program provides rebates to residents and businesses that install eligible energy-efficiency improvements, solar energy, or electric vehicle supply equipment. Rebates are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while funding lasts. Questions? Call 561-742-6067 or email EnergyEdge@bbfl.us

Program Eligibility: 
To be eligible for the Energy Edge Rebate Program, participants must:

  • Own a building within City limits that is at least 10 years old (10 years from date of building’s original permit application). Not required for solar PV and EVSE.
  • Reside in the building as your primary place of residence OR have a business that is the principal occupant of the building
  • Not offer the building for sale or lease within one (1) year after completing the work
  • Hire a licensed contractor to complete the work

How to Apply for a Rebate: 
Please complete the following three steps to claim your rebate:

  1. Verify that your property is within Boynton Beach City limits and print a copy of Palm Beach County Property Appraiser's (PAPA) record indicating you are the owner and occupant of the home or business (available online at: www.pbcgov.org/papa)
  2. Identify your project from the list below and obtain estimates from licensed contractors (three estimates are recommended). Contractors must have a current license for the proposed work and be registered with the City. Solar PV projects must be completed by certified solar contractors. We encourage participants to select a local contractor and purchase supplies from local businesses whenever possible. For insulation and HVAC projects, use one of FPL’s Participating Independent Contractors to be eligible for an added rebate. Your chosen contractor will obtain permits and inspections, and an insulation certificate if applicable.
  3. Submit your Energy Edge Rebate Application along with proof of payment, documentation of eligible product, permits, and your PAPA record within 90 days after the final permit inspection. Approved applicants will receive a rebate check in the mail.

Funds are available on a first-come first-served basis until all the funds allocated for this program have been expended. Rebates are reserved, but not guaranteed, for applicants that have been approved to participate in the program. If completed rebate request forms are not submitted within the allotted time period, applicants will need to re-apply for program approval. Property owners are encouraged to apply and complete the work as soon as possible to take advantage of the program funds. The City does not guarantee a reduction in energy usage or in utility bills from participation within this program, and reserves the right to modify this program at its discretion.

The Energy Edge Rebate Program allows a maximum rebate per property of $1,500 in a 10-year period.

Please note that every improvement listed, except insulation, requires a permit from the City.
