Kenergy is an electric cooperative that serves 51,000 households and commercial customers in 14 western Kentucky counties. Currently, Kenergy offers three rebate programs for residential customers who wish to increase the efficiency of their homes.
The Touchstone Energy All-Electric New Home Incentive provides a rebate for residents who install an energy efficient heat pump or geothermal heat pump in their new home. A heat pump that is rated 13.0 to 13.9 SEER is eligible for a $700 rebate, a heat pump that is rated 14.0 to 14.9 SEER is eligible for a $800 rebate and a 15.0 SEER or higher heat pump or a geothermal heat pump is eligible for a $900 rebate. The equipment must be rated by the Air Conditioning Refrigeration Institute (ARI) and be located within 1200 feet of a natural gas line. The household may have to meet specific Touchstone Energy building requirements.
Kenergy also offers the Dual Fuel/Add-on Heat Pump rebate. A customer can receive up to $90 a ton for a heat pump that is rated at least 13.0 SEER and used in conjunction with a gas furnace. The heat pump should be rated by ARI and should be a replacement for an existing air conditioning unit.
Kenergy will give a $300 rebate for customers who replace their gas water heater with an energy efficient electric water heater. The water heater should be at least 40 gallons and have a .90 energy factor or higher.
