Water Heating Program

Receive a rebate of $0.025 per Btu up to a maximum of $2,000* when you install a high-efficiency water heating system at your facility. Our Water Heating program will help you identify heat recovery units and heat pump water heaters that will generate optimum savings for you. Both new and existing construction projects qualify for this rebate.

How the program works
  • Commercial Heat Recovery: New heat recovery units must be rated at the current AHRI standard 470 with a minimum recovery rate of 2,000 Btu per ton and must operate during peak demand hours (which vary by season).

  • Commercial Heat Pump Water Heater: Also subject to seasonal demand hours, the system must be electric, meet AHRI and ASHRAE standards, have a minimum coefficient performance of 3.0, and be based on a water temperature that is a minimum of 120 degrees (or greater) leaving water temperature.
