Participating in PEC’s Residential HVAC Rebate Program is simple. The steps that are required to participate are outlined below. Members may choose to have their application submitted by their HVAC contractor by providing a completed Member Authorization Form. The contractor will be required to submit the form as specified in the participation process.
Step 1: Licensed HVAC contractor installs eligible HVAC system(s)
Member may select any licensed HVAC contractor to perform the system installation. It is ideal for the HVAC contractor to be aware of all program and installation requirements prior to performing the installation.
Step 2: Participant or HVAC contractor submits online rebate application through our online portal, which allows for a quicker approval process. In the event a hard copy application is needed, please contact PEC’s Conservation department.
The applicant will be required to provide the following types of information within the online rebate application form:
- Member information (including PEC account number)
- HVAC contractor information (including TACL number)
- New HVAC system information (Indoor/Outdoor units’ serial and model numbers)
- Replaced HVAC system information (SEER, EER, age)
- Installation date of new HVAC system
- Member’s signature (printed applications only)
Note that the HVAC contractor will need to provide some of the required information. Refer to the HVAC Rebate Program application form to see all of the required information.
Step 3: Applicant or HVAC contractor submits rebate application and required documents online.
- Participants must provide a copy of an AHRI certificate (provided by your contractor) for each HVAC system that was installed. Also, participants must include a copy of the installation invoice. The HVAC contractor will need to provide both of these documents to the participant.
- HVAC contractors submitting applications on behalf of their clients must provide a Member Authorization Form along with an AHRI certificate and copy of the installation invoice.
Applicants or their contractors must submit their rebate application online, or you may contact PEC’s Conservation department for assistance.
Installations completed within a given program year will only be eligible for that funded program year and cannot qualify for the preceding or subsequent year’s program. For example: any installations completed within 2016 are not eligible for the funded 2017 program.
Step 4: PEC reviews rebate application
Rebate applications will not be processed without all required documents.
PEC may choose to conduct a verification inspection to ensure that the HVAC system information was provided accurately.
Step 5: PEC Issues Bill Credit to Member
If the rebate application is approved, PEC will issue a bill credit to the member within three to six weeks. If the house is being rented and the landlord has a PEC landlord account, then PEC will issue a rebate check to the landlord.
