The Energy Star Appliance Program provides rebates for swimming pool pumps, clothes dryers, clothes washers, refrigerators, dehumidifiers, room air purifiers, and room air conditioners.

The Energy Star Heating and Cooling Program offers rebates for central air conditioners, heat pumps, mini split systems, and heat pump water heaters. Rebates are also available for wi-fi thermostats accompanying a qualifying heat pump.  Heating and cooling rebate funding for the 2017 program year is fully subscribed.

The Home Performance with Energy Star Program helps residential customers improve the energy efficiency of qualified homes. Customers may qualify for a complete home energy audit and receive recommendations for improving the energy efficiency of participating homes. The program provides rebates up to $4,000 and includes incentives for installing energy savings improvements, such as attic and building insulation, air sealing, improving heating and cooling systems, installing renewable energy systems, and upgrading lighting, appliances, and water heating equipment.

Incentives are also available through the Energy Star Homes/Residential New Construction Program for residential new construction. This program offers rebates for achieving certain levels of efficiency and for installing energy efficient appliances. 

Through the Income-Eligible Home Energy Assistance Program, certain customers may be eligible for up to $8,000 in energy efficiency improvements free of charge.
