      Closed Title:Roofing and Window Film Rebates
      Open Text:

      InvestSmart with JEA offers rebates for the installation of qualifying reflective window films and cool roofs that will reduce your energy use leading to savings on your utility bill. Weatherization is one of the most cost-effective ways to make a business more energy-efficient. Reflective window film can reduce solar heat gain and increase solar reflectance which will provide the same comfort levels with less energy usage. A reflective “cool roof” can greatly reduce the undesirable solar heating of a building. Installing an ENERGY STAR® reflective cool roof reduces hot weather cooling needs saving air conditioning energy costs and improving comfort.

      The incentives are available for commercial customers and are designed to help offset the initial cost for businesses who invest in energy efficiency upgrades. Window film projects will be capped at $1,000 per project and cool roof projects will be capped at $5,000 per project.
