Overview of Denton Municipal Electric (DME) GreenSense Incentive Program

We do a lot of work servicing and replacing commercial HVAC and residential air conditioning systems in the city of Denton TX, so we thought it would be a good idea to share a few details about the available incentives for Denton residents. This is a great rebate program available through the City of Denton that encourages replacement systems that are more energy efficient to help reduce homeowners’ utility bills, and reduce the load requirements on the Denton Municipal Electric facilities.
