Summary

Pearl River Valley Electric Power Association provides incentives through its Comfort Advantage Program to encourage energy efficiency within the residential sector. Rebates are available for heat pumps and electric water heaters in both new and existing homes. However, higher rebates are offered if a home meets the standards of a Comfort Advantage Home. Such homes must be new and feature:

  • Flat ceiling insulation of R-30 or higher
  • Wall insulation of R-18 or higher
  • Floor insulation of R-19 or greater
  • Dual-pane windows
  • Glass area less than 20% of total floor area
  • ASHRAE 90 certified electric water heater
  • Effective air-sealing and attic ventilation
  • Properly sized electric heat pump system designed for whole conditioning and with a seasonal energy rating of 13.0

If the above criteria are met, the home owner can receive rebates up to $500 for new, energy efficient heat pumps (SEER of 15 or higher) or geothermal heat pumps. These Comfort Advantage incentives are paid to whoever decides to incorporate Comfort Advantage Standards, either the owner or builder.
