Higher Rebates Available For Buying Energy-Efficient Heating

Potter County Today

Higher rebates are now being offered by the state as part of a program designed to help consumers save money and energy by  upgrading their home heating system. An initial allotment of $11 million for the program is going fast and rebates continue to be paid on a first-come, first-served basis.  The Pennsylvania Home Heating Equipment Rebate Program could aid as many as 33,000 households with the purchase of Energy Star-rated, non-electric residential hot water heaters, furnaces and boilers.  The $11 million program is being funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Rebates now range from $250 to $1,00, depending on the equipment’s efficiency rating. Consumers can apply for and receive their rebates by meeting each of the following requirements:

  • Reserve a rebate by completing an online application.  Residents without internet access may call 1-877-592-2061 to make a reservation.
  • Purchase and have a contractor install a qualifying product.  Purchases made before April 21, 2010, are not eligible.
  • Submit the completed rebate application within 30 days of the reservation date.

A company selected to manage the program, Resource Solutions Group, will mail rebate checks directly to consumers. More information about the rebate program is available here.
