HVAC Efficiency Program
Program Update: Due to its popularity, the 2016 rebate budget for the Delmarva Power HVAC Efficiency Program has been depleted.
As a result, effective June 1, 2016:
- Rebate amounts will be reduced by 10% for the qualified installed equipment for all rebate applications submitted on or after June 1, 2016.
- Rebate applications submitted on or before May 31, 2016 will receive the original rebate amount for the qualified installed equipment.
Equipment that has been purchased but not yet installed before June 1, 2016 will only qualify for the 10% reduced rebate amount.
The information on these HVAC webpages reflects the reduced rebate amounts.
Customers and HVAC contractors with questions can call 1-866-353-5799 for more information.
