The Sangre De Cristo Electric Association (SDCEA) offers the Energy Efficiency Credit Program, a rebate program which offers incentives for space heaters, water heaters and appliances.
In order to receive space heating rebates, insulation levels must meet program requirements. Rebate amounts are: $10 per kilowatt for resistive devices, $25 per kilowatt for electric thermal storage devices and $25 per timer installed. Heat pumps are also eligible for rebates; customers should contact SDCEA for more information on amounts and eligibility.
New and replacement water heaters are also eligible for rebates under this program. Water heaters are eligible for a $100 rebate per unit, and a $25 rebate per timer device. In addition, the customer can receive a $25 rebate for purchasing a lifetime warranty on the water heater.
The Energy Star Appliance Program provides $40 rebates on refrigerators/freezers, clothes washers, and dishwashers. Customers must submit a receipt and an application signed by an SDCEA representative within 180 days of the equipment purchase.
To apply for these rebates, customers should contact the SDCEA Member Services Department to set up a site inspection and fill out the necessary forms.
