Rebates are available only to Clay Electric Cooperative (CEC) residential members who are making efficiency upgrades to primary residence served by CEC. Rebates are available for residential members who purchase energy efficient heat pumps, heat recovery units, spray foam insulation, heat pump water heaters, or increase the amount of insulation in attics. To qualify for the insulation rebate, the existing level of insulation must be less than R-19. Only existing homes and facilities can partake in the window film, ceiling insulation and spray foam insulation offerings, not new construction. Heat pump rebates can be taken by both new construction and existing homes, and the amount varies from $50 to $500. Heat pump water heaters and heat recovery units are eligible for a flat rebate while radiant barrier rebates are rewarded on a per square foot basis.
CEC for any further information on these offerings or visit the program web site.
In addition to these rebates, CEC also has a low interest loan program for energy efficient purchases and rebates for solar water heaters.
