Electric heat pump: Rebates are available to members who install an electric heat pump with a SEER of 15 or higher and have a total electric home. The rebate equals $50 per ton, up to $200 per system.

Electric vehicles:

ENERGY STAR tax credits: Many ENERGY STAR products are eligible for tax credits ranging from $50-$500 including air conditioners, heat pumps, insulation, water heaters, windows, doors and more. For details visit

A/C and water heater load management: Receive a $25 credit when you join our air conditioning or water heater load management program plus receive monthly bill credits. Load management is one of the easiest ways to save. We install load control switches on your meter and then, when we forecast very hot afternoons (the times of highest energy demand, usually between 1-6 p.m. in the summer), our switches cycle your air conditioner and turn off your electric water heater to reduce usage. This helps all of our members save money, and pays you too! Click here for more information or to sign up!
