ENERGY STAR® Windows
Improve Comfort. Save Energy.
Windows dramatically affect your home’s energy efficiency and your utility bills. Energy efficient windows offer the potential for improving comfort in the home and lowering the costs of heating and cooling.
El Paso Electric’s New Mexico residential customers have the opportunity to participate in the EPESaver ENERGY STAR® Windows Program. Rebates are available for the installation of windows that can reduce energy consumption.
The Knowledge You Need.
- Available only to residential customers in El Paso Electric’s New Mexico service area
- New Construction projects are NOT eligible to receive a rebate
- Existing windows must be single or double pane with clear glass
- To be eligible for the rebate, windows must meet the ENERGY STAR® specifications shown in the table below
- U-Factor is a measure of how well a window keeps heat inside a building — lower is better
- Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) is a measure of windows’ ability to block warming caused by sunlight — lower is better
ENERGY STAR® Windows Specifications
|U-Factor Btu/(h sq.ft.°F)||Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)|
|≤ 0.30||≤ 0.25|
ENERGY STAR® windows rebates are calculated on per square foot of window basis, inclusive of frame and sash.
The table below displays the rebate amounts for the EPESaver ENERGY STAR® Windows Rebate program:
|Homes with Refrigerated Cooling ($/Sqft)||Homes with Evaporative Cooling ($/Sqft)|
Rebate Calculation Example:
Energy efficient windows are installed to replace single pane windows in a home with refrigerated cooling. Total window area replaced, including frame and sash, equals 300 Sqft.
Estimated Rebate = 300 x $3.00/Sqft = $900
