Dominion Virginia Power provides a number of rebates to customers for the installation of energy efficient equipment and measures.
The Home Energy Check Up program provides an on-site analysis of energy use, a custom report with upgrade recommendations, financial incentives that cover approved measures, access to prequalified contractors and equipment installation at the convenience of the customer. Measures eligible for incentive payments include pipe insulation, tank wraps, water heater controls, CFL bulbs, HVAC filter replacements, door weatherization and smart strips. Incentive levels are determined by the amount of kWh savings attained by installing new equipment or measures. The incentive range is from $50 – $230 based on a number of measures installed during the visit.
Incentives are also available for heat pump tune ups, duct testing, duct sealing and upgrading heat pumps to a model that exceeds 14.5 SEER. All equipment and installation requirements must be met in order to participate. Contact Dominion Virginia Power for further details on incentive levels and eligibility.
Income-qualifying homeowners may participate in the Income-Qualifying Home Improvement program, which includes a free in-home energy audit and certain improvements.
