In May of 2008 the City Council of Boulder City adopted Resolution No. 5210 adopting new electrical utility rebates in Boulder City.
Advancements in Technology
New technologies in energy efficiency warrant Boulder City to update the rebate program. This program will be looked at on a yearly basis and updated if needed according to the advancements in technology at that time.
All rebate applications must be submitted within 60 days of installation and on a first come, first served basis. Monies are limited so submit your application while rebates are available.
