Most people never realize when they upgrade specific fixtures or appliance in their home they may qualify for a rebate. In some cases the rebates can be as much as $600. These rebates are to help consumers upgrade to more energy efficient models for water heaters, pool pumps, washers, dryers, attic installation, and smart thermostats.

Most of these rebates are available through December 31, 2019. However, each new year the energy providers update their list of rebates and qualifications. Many of the programs stay the same or have small changes.
