Rebate application

Once you've completed one or more qualifying upgrade(s), you may apply for a rebate(s). If you plan to complete multiple upgrades, you can wait to apply for rebates all at once. However, please note that rebate applications must be received within 6 months of the installation date of the upgrade (except for applications for the $750 bonus and the draftproofing rebate).

Please carefully read through the terms and conditions [PDF, 215 KB] to confirm your eligibility and understand the rebate requirements. You need to have all supporting documents required for your application.

In-home site visit

Some rebate applications are randomly selected for a site visit before a rebate payment is issued. The purpose of the site visit is to verify eligibility and the upgrades detailed in your rebate application. The entire visit will take approximately 60-90 minutes.

If your application is selected for a site visit, our contractor, It's On Electric, will contact you with further instructions. Please make your best effort to schedule the visit, as your application including rebate eligibility and amounts may be adjusted, based on the site visit acceptance and result.
