Springfield Utility Board (SUB) offers a rebate program targeting heat pumps, weatherization measures and various household appliances. A rebate of $500 is available to residential customers in manufactured or site built homes for the purchase of qualifying air-source or geothermal heat pumps. A $1,500 rebate is also available to residential customers for qualifying ductless heat pumps. In addition to heat pump incentives, a rebate totaling 50% of the cost of insulation measures is available to residential customers in manufactured, site-built, or multi-family complexes for ceiling, floor, and wall insulation. A rebate of 100% of the insulation measure is available to limited income customers.
Clothes washers, water heaters, refrigerators and freezers, as well as refigerator and freezer recycling, are also eligible for rebates between $25 and $80. Appliances must meet all efficiency and program requirements in order to receive incentives. View the program web site for forms and instructions for these pieces of equipment.
