Hopkinsville Electric System (HES) offers a variety of rebates for homeowners who replace an existing water heater with a new, electric water heater. If the existing water heater is electric, and is replaced by another electric water heater, HES offers a $50 rebate. The rebate form may be downloaded by clicking here.
If a homeowner chooses to replace a gas water heater with an electric water heater, a $500 rebate is available. If a homeowner chooses to install a heat pump (electric) water heater, a $200 rebate is available. To qualify for these rebates the homeowner must first register their home for the TVA eScore Program before replacing the water heater. The eScore program provides many rebates for energy efficiency improvements homeowners may choose to implement in their home, such as adding insulation, air sealing, sealing the HVAC duct system, or upgrading an HVAC unit. Once a qualifying improvement is made, an eScore Program energy efficiency expert will inspect the work to make certain the work was done properly, and also perform an entire home energy efficiency audit to determine if other improvements would be beneficial.
