Ozark Border Electric Cooperative has made rebates available to residential members for the installation of energy efficient geothermal and air source heat pumps, electric water heaters, and room air conditioners. In order to receive rebates, all equipment must meet the specified energy efficiency program standards. Geothermal heat pumps are eligible for a rebate of $750 per ton ($150 per ton for replacement units) and air source heat pumps are eligible for $150 per ton, up to 4 tons. For both heat pump rebates, the system must be the primary heating system in the home. The water heater rebate is $50 - $75 dollars depending on whether you are installing a new water heater, replacing a gas unit, or replacing an old electric unit.
In order to apply for the rebates, customers must contact one of the Ozark Border Electric local offices and provide them with a copy of the invoice that includes details of the equipment brand, size, and efficiency.
