Residential High-Efficincy Heat Pump Low-Interest Loan

An incentive of $30 is available to homeowners every 3 years who have their cooling system tuned up. Eligible systems include air conditioners, air source heat pumps (electric or fossil fuel back-up) and water source heat pumps. Contact your HVAC dealer. >> View Details

Residential Attic Insulation

The attic insulation program allows a homeowner with electric heat to install at least six inches of attic insulation in up to 2,000 sq. ft. of attic space in an existing home.

Commercial and Industrial Lighting Efficiency Program

Customers have an opportunity to earn incentives for upgrading to more efficient lighting. Incentives are available for both indoor and outdoor technologies. Prescriptive and custom programs are available. Contact Nicki White at CCPPD to discuss the one for your business, then contact the lighting contractor of your choice. >> View Details

Commercial HVAC system

The commercial HVAC program allows rebates to businesses for installing water-cooled or air cooled air conditioners or air source, water source, or ground source heat pumps. The rebate is dependent on total tonnage of the unit(s) and/or one of two performance ratings, either the SEER or the Actual EER. Please contact your HVAC dealer for specific details about the program because some cooling systems do not qualify. Information is available that defines both the type of equipment and the associated equation to figure the rebate. >> View Details

Variable Frequency Drives

Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) can be effective at reducing power and energy consumption to centrifugal equipment such as pumps and fans. Incentive is $30 per horsepower, but no HVAC. Those who qualify for irrigation incentives cannot qualify for this incentive. Contact CCPPD to see if a VFD is right for you and if it can be used on your lines. >> View Details

It is designed to provide customers with financial incentives to help assess irrigation system performance and improve areas of inefficiency. Contact CCPPD with any questions. >> View Details

Light Emitting Diode (LED) Lamps

In recent years, LEDs have taken the lighting industry by storm. Simply put, an LED is a chip of semiconducting material that releases energy in the form of light. LEDs are used just like ordinary bulbs. However, not all LED products are
created equal. They may vary in quality, energy use, and life span. Be sure to do your research before purchasing, and look for the ENERGY STAR® label.>> View Brochure/Application
