REBATE PROGRAMS

JACKSON ENERGY REBATES - Jackson Energy offers member rebates primarily in two areas - energy efficiency and electric load shaping. Both of these categories aid in matching the energy used in relation to the demand for required energy. The following is a list of rebates offered by Jackson Energy.

TOUCHSTONE ENERGY HOME -This is a new home program.  This home is constructed to an efficiency standard that should use 30% less energy versus standard construction practices for our area. The member should schedule a pre-construction meeting with a JE energy advisor. The advisor will share with the member information needed to qualify their new home as a Touchstone Energy Home. The energy advisor will perform two inspections on the home - a pre-drywall inspection and a final inspection. A blower door test is also performed as part of the final inspection. Touchstone Energy Homes qualify for a $750 rebate.

AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMP REPLACING ELECTRIC RESISTANCE HEAT - This program is for members who are considering changing from electric resistance heat to a heat pump. Examples of resistance electric heat are: baseboard, electric furnace, ceiling cable, wall heaters, etc. The existing heating system is required to be at least two years old. The ducting system, whenever possible, should also be sealed during the installation of the new heat pump. An energy advisor will inspect and the new heat pump before issuing a rebate. New mobile homes are eligible for this rebate when adding a heat pump to an electric furnace.

  • Replacing resistance heat with heat pump.
  • Rebate is $500.00 for 13 SEER, $750 for 14 SEER, $1000 for 15 SEER or higher.
  • Energy Advisor will inspect.
  • Duct system should be sealed.
  • Also applies to mobile homes.

HEAT PUMP TUNE-UP - A heat pump tune-up includes a check of your heat pump system and some minor repairs to the ductwork. Ductwork can be a major source of air leaks in the home, about 15% in the average home, which causes conditioned air to leak outdoors rather than stay inside the home. This leads to higher energy bills. This program is designed to encourage members to give attention to the HVAC systems in their homes. It is a known fact that as these systems age they will lose some efficiency. With this program a HVAC technician cleans the coils, checks the filter, measures the temperature across the coils to determine proper operation, and seals the air supply and return ducting, the most important element in the process. The home must be an all electric home.

  • Member is charged a $50.00 per heat pump unit fee for service.
  • Fee can be added to the next bill statement.
  • JE pays an additional $250 to contractor to perform the work.
  • JE contractor performs the tune up.
  • Heat pump and ducting should be a minimum of two years old.

 

BUTTON UP - This program encourages members to add insulation and other products and materials to their homes that will result in electric energy savings. Other products could include improved doors and windows, weather stripping, and general air sealing. The rebate is calculated so the member receives $40.00 for every 1000 Btu’s saved from the improvements that were made. The home is required to be a least two years old and all electric.

  • Four levels of rebates –

Level 1 maximum rebate $520 – insulation only.

Level 2 maximum rebate $750 – insulation and air sealing.

Level 3 maximum rebate $1060 – insulation, air sealing, at least 26,500 BTU reduction

Level 4 maximum rebate $1370 – insulation, air sealing, at least 34,250 BTU reduction

  • Rebate is based on amount of energy savings.
