Dual Fuel Heating Systems Rebate:

The Energy Cooperative has a program available for electric members, which will enable you to heat your home more economically. The Dual Fuel heating system consists of two separate sources of heat. The primary source is the electric heat pump and the secondary source is a gas or fuel oil furnace. When you install a dual fuel system, you may be eligible to receive a $599.00 rebate.

For more information, please view the program webpage and view the program agreement here


Replacement Electric Water Heater Rebate:

When you replace your existing electric water heater with a qualifying replacement, you may be eligible for a $100.00 replacement water heater rebate from The Energy Cooperative.  This rebate is intended for residing electric members who will permit the installation and operation of a radio controlled switch (RCS) on their new electric water heater. In doing so, it is understood that the RCS will be operated during peak demand times.

More information can be found on the program webpage here.


New Electric Water Heater Rebate:

If you are constructing a new home or replacing a propane gas, natural gas or fuel oil water heater with a new electric water heater you can qualify for the following rebates:

  • 50-70 Gallons - $250.00
  • Over 71 Gallons - $300.00

Qualifications and more information can be found here


Geothermal Heating and Cooling Rebate:

The Energy Cooperative offers a geothermal rebate program available to Licking Rural Electric members, which will enable our electric members to install a qualifying geothermal system and receive a rebate from the Energy Cooperative. A geothermal system is a very efficient way to reduce energy consumption while still heating and cooling your home. Qualified installations are eligible for a $599 rebate from the Energy Cooperative.

Cool Returns Rebate: 

Electric members of The Energy Cooperative with a central air conditioner or air-source or ground-source heat pump, installed within the last seven years, are eligible to participate and this rebate is intended for residing electric members who will permit the installation and operation of a radio controlled switch (RCS) on their new air conditioner/heat pump. In doing so, it is understood that the RCS will be operated during peak demand times. These times are typically 2:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. The radio-controlled “smart” switches are not operated on a daily basis; they are operated only during peak times when the demand for electricity is very high. Once the “smart” switch is on, it automatically cycles the compressor during peak summer times. These peak demand times are temperature dependant, as the weather becomes very hot, the demand for electricity peaks. Most of the time the radio controlled switches are operated for a few hours and may only raise the temperature in the home a few degrees. The switch does not affect performance of the air conditioner/heat pump or cause wear and tear because the switch acts like a thermostat. Homeowners who have window air conditioners currently are not eligible.
