New Hampshire Electric Co-Op provides a number of energy efficiency incentive programs for its residential members. First, members can receive a free Home Energy Analysis through the Home Performance with Energy Star Program. The analysis will examine the home's air sealing, insulation, equipment thermostats and insulation, as well as the energy consumption of the home's refrigerator. The NHEC representative may recommend certain improvements during the evaluation and offer 50% off the cost of the improvements up to a total of $4,000. An interest-free loan is available to help cover the remaining out-of-pocket costs for customers.

Homes, lightingappliances, and heat pumps are also eligible for a variety of incentives. To qualify for the Energy Star Home rebate, the home must be a new or completely renovated existing single-family or multi-family home, located in the Co-op's service territory, which meets certain design specifications. Some restrictions apply to individual rebate offers. Visit the program website for further details on specific programs.
