Tucson Electric Power (TEP) offers rebate programs for residential customers who install energy efficient equipment in existing homes. The Efficient Home Cooling Program provides rebates for the purchase of qualifying high-efficiency air conditioners and heat pumps. The amount of the rebate depends on the efficiency (SEER) of equipment purchased. TEP recommends, but does not require, the purchase and installation of ENERGY STAR qualified equipment. Rebate applications must be submitted within 90 days of installation.
TEP has also partnered with local retailers and lighting manufacturers to offer the TEP Energy Star Lighting Program. Customers can receive discounted pricing on energy-efficient lighting at participating retailers listed on the program web site. The discount amount depends on the type and wattage of the bulbs.
