Power of Community - Pedernales Electric Cooperative

HVAC Rebate Program

Are you considering replacing your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system? Pedernales Electric Cooperative offers rebate incentives to residential members for the installation of energy-efficient HVAC systems in existing single-family homes. To qualify for incentives, participants must meet all program eligibility criteria and satisfy all installation requirements.

PEC’s Residential HVAC Rebate Program is subject to change without prior notice and is only available while funds last. HVAC Rebate applications will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis. 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. For example: any installations completed during 2015 are not eligible for the funded 2016 program.

FUNDING UPDATE: About 90 percent of the funds allocated for this year's Residential HVAC Rebate Program have been distributed to members. We will update this page if funds run out or if the PEC Board of Directors allocates additional funds to the rebate program.
