Previously Treated Customers are Ineligible for this Program:
There have been energy efficiency programs in the past five to ten years that have treated residential customers for certain measures included in the HES program. Xcel Energy program managers want to emphasize to Project Sponsors that customers previously served by these programs are not eligible to receive the same services or measure installations under the current HES. For example, a showerhead and faucet aerator retrofit program was conducted at multi-family and single family residences during the late nineties. Over 40,000 showerheads were distributed through this program. Customers served under this previous program will not be eligible for showerhead retrofits.
