Earn 10 cents per square foot in rebates for installing a cool roof with an initial solar reflectance greater than .70 which means the cool roof is reflecting 70% of the solar radiation. The cool roof must be listed in the Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) directory, applied by a licensed contractor and installed over (electronically) air-conditioned space on a roof with a pitch of 2:12 or less.
Earn 50 cents per square foot in rebates for installing new insulation on existing buildings to meet or exceed the ASHRAE Standard 90 1-2010 R-value of 20. The rebate is not available in spaces where the existing insulation is already R-value of 20 or greater.
In addition to the rebate, installing a cool roof can lower the temperature of your roof up to 60° during the summer as a cool roof reflects solar heat away from your roof’s surface and prevents heat absorption. According to studies by the CRRC, this could result in a 10-30% savings on typical cooling energy. View PDF.
