SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Home Performance program says it has helped make more Utah homes more energy-efficient.

In 2011, more than 1,000 homeowners took advantage of the program, which offered up to $2,000 in cash rebates as incentives to homeowners making the upgrades as recommended in a Home Performance Assessment (HPA).

In addition, the program leveraged Rocky Mountain Power and Questar’s Demand Side Management programs, averaging $450 in rebates per home.

The program, which is funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, is projected to complete nearly 1,300 home upgrades by the time all funds are spent, which the Office of Energy Development estimates will be in spring of this year.
