Get a $500 rebate when you purchase an ENERGY STAR® certified hybrid heat pump water heater. To qualify for a rebate, ENERGY STAR hybrid heat pump water heaters 55 gallons and under must have an Energy Factor (EF) of 2.0 or above. ENERGY STAR hybrid heat pump water heaters over 55 gallons must have an EF of 2.2 or above.
Rebate eligibility requirements have recently changed. Due to updates in ENERGY STAR specifications, certain models no longer qualify for a rebate from the BGE Smart Energy Savers Program®. BGE will honor rebates for previously eligible models if they are purchased on or before July 16th, 2015. The rebate application must be postmarked no later than August 16th, 2015.
An ENERGY STAR certified hybrid heat pump water heater can save the average U.S. household almost $370 per year on its electric bills, compared to a standard electric water heater. Larger families that typically use more hot water could save even more.
