Through the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund, The United Illuminating Company (UI) offers several rebate programs for residential heating and cooling. Rebate funding is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Customers may receive $500 rebate for installing ENERGY STAR electric central air conditioning or electric heat pump systems, and up to $1000 for ductless systems. The systems must meet certain Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) and certain Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER). Installations may be on new or existing homes. Equipment must be installed by a licensed contractor.
Geothermal Heat Pumps
UI Geothermal rebates are based on performance measurements rather than rated capacity, since design and installation impacts performance. Geothermal equipment must be ENERGY STAR-rated and A.H.R.I.-rated to qualify (Air Conditioning Heating and Refrigeration Institute: www.ahrinet.org). Customers wishing to apply must also submit a completed Verification of Installed Performance (VIP) worksheet. The rebate is $500 per ton for successfully commissioned geothermal systems. The geothermal rebate is capped at $1,500 per customer meter.
Air to Air Heat Pumps
UI is offering a rebate of $500 for residential customers who purchase and install an air to air heat pump as the primary heat source for a unit. Customers receiving the rebate must meet efficiency requirements stated on program website and application. See rebate form on web site listed above. Follow all instructions on web site and application forms.
Marked Energy Star qualified lighting fixtures are also available for rebates. These products are located on the Energy Star Retail Products tab on the website listed above. See the program website for additional information and application materials.
