On the last day of 2014, an announcement came in from Efficiency Maine: In addition to their $300 mail-in rebate on heat pump water heaters, they have just rolled out a $200 markdown on qualifying units with Maine retailers and wholesalers. Heat pump water heaters that used to sell for $999 can now be found for $799 and they still qualify for the $300 mail-in rebate. These units offer 50-gallon tanks, 10-year warranties and up to $2,500 lifetime savings, based on $250/year savings vs electric resistance water heating (per Energy Star). Check out the program here.
In addition, new appliances have been added to the list of eligible rebates from Efficiency Maine.
