Water Heater Rebates
Water heater selection must meet minimum ASHRAE Standard Number 90, with tank insulation of R-16, R-20, or greater and dual heating elements. The water heater must be 40 gallons minimum capacity. The typical home recommended capacity is 50 gallons or more. Purchase and installation cost must be verifiable with the original paid receipt. The City of Duncan Code Enforcement Department must be called by the installing party or contractor to inspect and approve the completed installation. The rebate payment will not be made unless the inspection approval has been given.
The Duncan Power Energy Conservation Analyst must be called to perform on-site verification of the water heater manufacturer, model number, and receipts. After verification that the water heater complies all the specifications required, a rebate will be made directly to the Duncan Power customer at the following levels: $100 for R16 or $150 for an R20 insulated unit toward the purchase and installation of an electric water heater with 40-49 gallon capacity. An additional $40 rebate if changed from a gas to an electric unit.
The maximum payment is $190, $175 for R16, or $250 for an R20 insulated unit toward the purchase and installation of an electric water heater with 50 gallons or more capacity. An additional $50 rebate if changed from a gas to an electric unit. The maximum payment is $300. A $50 incentive will be paid to the home builder or subdivision contractor for the first unit installed in a new home or new commercial construction. An incentive of $15 will be paid for each additional qualifying unit installed on the same site. The maximum payment for any one unit will be $300. Effective date: September 1, 2006
