Our Energy Checkup Program provides you ways to save energy and money by having an Independent Service Contractor analyze your home's energy usage. You may also be eligible to receive instant discounts for insulation, air sealing or duct sealing.

You qualify for the Energy Checkup Program if you are a Mississippi Power residential customer, live in a single-family home or multifamily unit of two units or fewer, and your home is at least a year old.

We offer two options for home assessments. Both include installation of energy-saving devices such as LED bulbs, smart power strips and faucet aerators.

The tier 1 assessment offers:

  • an inspection of your home's insulation, appliances, lighting, and heating and air equipment.
  • installation of no-cost energy-saving devices by an Independent Service Contractor.
  • $75 provided by Mississippi Power to offset the cost of the assessment.

The tier 2 assessment offers:

  • an inspection of your home's insulation, appliances, lighting, and heating and air equipment.
  • installation of no-cost energy-saving devices by an Independent Service Contractor.
  • comprehensive diagnostic testing that typically includes blower door test, duct tightness test and air flow testing.
  • a detailed report featuring inspection results and diagnostic testing analysis.
  • $75 provided by Mississippi Power to offset the cost of the assessment.

Below are estimated incentives for a 2,000 square foot home. Incentives vary based on your square footage and type of energy you use to heat your home.
