Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Energize Phoenix are hosting “Go Green Like Your Grocer,” a community energy efficiency showcase at AJ’s Fine Foods on Central Avenue and Camelback Road from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, June 30.
The event is open to the public and will celebrate the completion of Energize Phoenix energy efficiency upgrades at AJ’s. The Mayor will also announce double rebates for the remainder of the program (up to $3,000).
“We are thrilled to showcase AJ’s commitment to energy efficiency and officially name them an Energize Phoenix Energy Saving Superhero,” said Mayor Stanton. “Our goal is to encourage residents within the Energize Phoenix Corridor to complete a free home energy check-up so they can save money by saving energy and contribute to a sustainable community.”
In many cases, double rebates will pay for 100 percent of energy efficiency project costs. Typical project costs to date range from $600 to $5,000 and include:
|ENERGY SAVING MEASURE||ENERGIZE PHOENIX STANDARD REBATE||ENERGIZE PHOENIX DOUBLE REBATE|
|Duct leakage Repair and Sealing||Up to $ 250 (per system)||Up to $500 (per system -maximum three)|
|Sealing Air Leaks||Up to $ 250||Up to $500|
|Attic Insulation||Up to $ 250||Up to $500|
|Shade Screens||Up to $ 250||Up to $500|
*The double rebate offer does not include air conditioners or solar water heaters. Standard rebates apply. **Energize Phoenix rebates cannot exceed total project costs.
Mayor Stanton will also kick off free home energy check-ups after a $99 rebate for the remainder of the program. APS will be on-site giving away a free CFL bulb to attendees, as long as supplies last.
Energize Phoenix offers cash incentives and financing to help pay for energy saving projects for homes and businesses located within the Energize Phoenix Corridor, a 10-mile stretch along the light rail line. To access Energize Phoenix program incentives, participants must use an Energize Phoenix approved contractor.

The city of Phoenix was awarded a $25 million federal grant from the U.S. Department of Energy Better Buildings Neighborhood Program and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to launch the Energize Phoenix program in partnership with Arizona State University and with support from Arizona Public Service. The Energize Phoenix program saves energy, creates jobs and will transform a diverse array of neighborhoods along the METRO light rail.
