Xcel Energy still has almost one million dollars of stimulus money for helping homeowners lower their cost of energy. With their Energy Efficiency Programs, now thru the end of the year, you can qualify for rebates and tax breaks if you make your home energy efficient. Just replacing installation can lead to a rebate of between 200 to 400 dollars. Officials say contractors are going door-to-door to offer their help, but you shouldn't feel pressured to purchase.

Mark Nisbet - Xcel Energy: "Most of the contractors in town know how the rebates work so if you are dealing with a contractor again I would go back to take a look and have those competing bids."
