Sugar Land, TX – Sugar Land City Council recently approved modifications to the Generator Rebate Program. Due to an increased demand for permanent standby generators, homeowners are waiting longer than anticipated for the installation of permanent standby generators.
City Council modified and extended deadlines related to the Generator Rebate Program allowing more time for more homeowners to install permanent standby generators at their homes and qualify for the rebate program.
A complete Residential Building Permit application must be submitted to the city by Nov. 30, 2021.
The installation and all city inspections are still required to be completed prior to approval and issuance of the rebate to the homeowner but are no longer required to be completed by Nov. 30 to qualify for the rebate.
A complete application requesting the rebate of permit fees paid is still required to be submitted by the homeowner before a rebate will be issued.
The rebate offer will still be available to homeowners who have submitted a building permit application to install a permanent standby generator between Feb. 15, 2021 and Nov. 30, 2021.
The rebate covers city permit and plan check fees associated with the installation of permanent standby generators.
In June 2021, Sugar Land City Council established a Generator Rebate Program. The rebate was created as an additional relief option as part of a broader residential reinvestment/resiliency pilot program in an effort to support additional recovery efforts for residents following Winter Storm Uri while also looking ahead proactively as hurricane season started. Overall, this type of reinvestment in Sugar Land neighborhoods promotes preparedness and supports resiliency during and after severe weather.
