If you recently purchased a new home in OUC’s service territory or you’re about to, you could be eligible for energy efficiency rebates totaling hundreds of dollars.
OUC’s New Home Rebate Program rewards customers who make the following energy-smart choices when buying a new home:
- Upgraded Ceiling Insulation – OUC pays 3 cents per square foot when processed with 15 SEER or higher heat pump or Energy Star® heat pump water heater.
- 15 SEER or Higher Heat Pump – Save up to $1,630.
- Solar Thermal Water Heater — Save $900.
- Energy Star® Heat Pump Water Heater – OUC pays 100% of cost up to $500.
For example, a homebuyer of a 2,000-square-foot home could earn rebates totaling $2,190 for choosing to upgrade ceiling insulation and the heat pump, and having an Energy Star® heat pump water heater installed. Each efficiency upgrade saves customers money on their electric bills.
Customers have six months from their closing date to submit an online rebate application. Eligible rebates appear as credits on monthly utility bills.
