Palmetto Electric Cooperative offers a rebate for ground-source geothermal heat pumps. The program, which began in 1990, is available only to the cooperative’s residential customers. The rebate amounts to $200 per ton for either conversions from existing electric heating equipment or new installations of geothermal heat pumps. Participants may receive a maximum rebate of $1,000.

In order to maximize the program's publicity, Palmetto Electric promotes the program to dealers who install heat pumps.
