The Victory Electric Cooperative Association, Inc., announces the development of a heat pump/water heater rebate program available to you, the member.
The objective of the heat pump rebate program is to encourage energy efficiency and conservation by encouraging you to install qualified air source heat pumps or geothermal heat pumps to heat and cool your home or business.
The rebate is $200/ton for an air or ground source heat pump. The minimum requirements for an air source heat pump are a SEER (Seasonal Energy Effeciency Ratio) of 14.5 and an HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) of 8.2 For a geothermal heat pump, the minimum requirements are a COP(Coefficient of Performance) of 3.3 and an EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) of 14.1 (closed loop) and a COP of 3.6 and an EER of 16.2 (open loop). Both must have a minimum unit size of 2 ton. Heat pumps must be permanently installed and dual-fuel units do not qualify for the rebate. If you have any questions about installing a heat pump in your home, contact your local heating and air specialist.
The objective of the water heater rebate program is to promote energy efficiency and conservation by encouraging you to install energy efficient water heaters.
The rebate is $200 towards an electric water heater. Electric water heaters must have a minimum capacity of 40 gallons and a maximum connected wattage of 5500 watts. It must have a minimum efficiency rating of 93 percent and equipped with a safety pressure relief valve.
By taking advantage of the rebates, you can also qualify for our all-electric tariffs. To receive these tariffs, you must provide proof that your home is completely electric through a home inspection by Victory Electric personnel. Also, for proof that the unit meets rebate qualifications, we need a copy of the heating/air/plumbing contractors invoice.
