Heat Pump Rebate Catalog

RESIDENTIAL & NON-RESIDENTIAL

Heat pumps have the potential to deliver significant savings on your home heating bill because they deliver energy more efficiently than other sources. Heat pumps are actually air conditioners that include a reverse cycle for heating, so they cool homes in summer and heat them in winter. We offer several different types of rebates for both homes and businesses. (Updated July 1, 2023)

Electric Vehicle Rebates

RESIDENTIAL & NON-RESIDENTIAL

RCEA’s first round of Electric Vehicle (EV) rebates ($50,000) is fully subscribed as of February 14, 2023. We were excited to provide 43 RCEA customers with EV rebates between April 15, 2021 and February 14, 2023. The average rebate amount was $1,128. RCEA staff are evaluating the effectiveness of this first round of funding as we consider a future EV rebate program. For example, early findings show a need to focus future efforts toward low-income qualified customers. RCEA staff hopes to offer more EV rebates to our customers in the future, if and when any new EV rebate program is launched by RCEA we will provide updates via this webpage. We hope to have more information available by July of 2023.
