“Your cooperation with and handling of the Columbia Home Performace Program was terrific and made replacing my furnace and air conditioner hassle-free!”
– E. Bulliner, 2015
It’s the best program we’ve seen in our three generations and not just because we’re able to save our customers an average of 30.45%. (We saved one family more than 60%!)
It’s also the best program because of the ease of financing through the city and the additional rebates and incentives to improve your whole house’s energy efficiency.
Oh, and there’s a Federal Tax Credit too.
In short, it’s an amazing time to be you … if your house suffers from hot spots or cold drafty spaces.

If you’d like to learn more about the City of Columbia’s involvement with the Home Performance with the Energy Star program, we encourage you to visit the city’s tremendously helpful website.
For additional information and to get an exact rebate and cost comparison, please have one of our expert comfort advisors evaluate your home. They have evaluated hundreds of homes to create the most money available to stay in your pocket.
Home Performance with Energy Star is a national program for existing homes designed to help homeowners bring their homes up to Energy Star standards for comfort, safety, health, durability and energy efficiency. This is a national program sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources that is offered to you by Columbia Water & Light.
Several aspects of your home are covered, including the heating, ventilating and air conditioning system, ductwork, insulation, windows and infiltration. These systems are evaluated separately and collectively to show the potential for improved energy efficiency.
This program is available to Columbia Water & Light residential electric customers who are remodeling their homes to be more energy efficient. Home Performance program parameters must be followed to qualify for rebates and a Home Performance Loan. Please see the Home Performance Loan program parameters for all the items necessary to qualify.
To see if this program could help you, complete the Home Energy Yardstick assessment, which is listed under the Home Improvement section at www.energystar.gov. If you have a score of 5 or less, your home could benefit from the Home Performance program.
Participating local contractors are certified by the Building Performance Institute to evaluate your home using state-of-the-art equipment. Our Home Performance Contractors are trained in a “whole-house” approach of inspecting and testing that allows them to identify and evaluate energy-efficient improvements using recognized building science concepts. These contractors will also help you take advantage of federal tax credits and Columbia Water & Light rebates and low-interest loans for energy efficiency improvements.
Rather than focusing on a single component, such as single-paned windows, an old air conditioning system, or leaky ductwork, a participating contractor will assess how improvements to all of these components can work together to provide:
Columbia Water & Light is offering qualified electric customers rebates up to $1,200 for home improvements and up to $1,200 for high-efficiency air conditioners. Rebates will be finalized after the Quality Assurance Assessment.
The Home Performance Loan program will help electric customers finance efficiency upgrades that are suggested during a Home Performance evaluation. Financing is available at the prime lending rate with a ten-year payback period. There is a $15,000 cap for the Home Performance with Energy Star loan program. You must submit a loan application along with copies of all the bids. The application process will take about two weeks and needs to be approved before any work is started on your home.

The contractor should also test combustion equipment, such as your furnace and hot water heater, to ensure that it is operating and venting properly.
Once you have taken steps to increase your home’s efficiency, you may also want to consider adding renewable energy systems, such as solar electric (photovoltaic) or solar hot water, to further reduce your utility bills.
