South Central Electric Association has rebate programs for a number of different energy conservation and efficiency practices. Rebates are for South Central Electric Association members only. Rebates may be limited to a total of $10,000 per year per member.
Appliance rebates are available on qualified Energy Star appliances. We are currently paying rebates on dishwashers, clothes washers, refrigerators, freezers, room air conditioners and dehumidifiers. To obtain your rebate please use the Energy Star Appliance Rebate Application.
New air source heat pumps and central air conditioners have rebates available. Units must have a SEER rating of 14.5 and higher to qualify. If your unit was installed by a contractor that has completed the "quality install" program requirements, you will receive a higher rebate. The quality install program requires contractors to test the units after completion of the install to optimize efficiencies.
