Energy Efficiency Rebate

Helping members become more energy efficient is important to us which is why we offer a rebate to help offset some of the cost of investing in a high-efficiency AC/heating system. Heating and cooling costs account for up to 50% of your energy bills, so taking steps to make your home’s system(s) more efficient can have a significant impact on your electric usage and save you money in the long run. If you have questions about our rebate, read below, call an Energy Solutions Specialist at 800.223.4832 or email rebates@gvec.org.
