REMC members look to us to provide the most accurate and useful energy information as is available. To us, it’s a responsibility we take seriously.
Whether your personal goal is to go green, reduce your carbon footprint, become energy independent, increase the efficiency of your household or just control the energy costs in your own home, we all want to make certain we’re working as “smart” as we can to meet that goal.
Clark County REMC has had a long history of supporting members with rebate programs to offset purchase or installation costs of water heating and/or heating and cooling equipment. We’ve been able to do this, in part, with support of our generating and transmission cooperative, Hoosier Energy. It’s been important to maintain the electric load of our system and to do so in a responsible manner that benefits the REMC member.
The incentives being offered are designed to promote energy efficiency as recommended by the U.S. Department of Energy through the Energy Star program.
* SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio. This is a measure of the energy efficiency of an air conditioning system. SEER ratings permit consumers to compare operating costs of various systems and products.
** Dual Fuel – Add a heat pump with a SEER rating of 15.0 or higher to an existing fossil fuel system. The heat pump will heat and cool your home down to a temperature of 25 degrees F. Below 25 degrees F., the fossil fuel furnace takes over.
Mobile Home/Manufactured Housing Program
Duct Sealing - A NEW way to save!
The duct system in our home distributes air generated by your heating system to the individual rooms in your home. Disconnected ducts and smaller leaks keep air from moving efficiently - making your equipment work harder to heat or cool your home. With the REMC's duct sealing rebate, just call the REMC and a program approved contractor will seal your duct system and ensure that air you are paying for stays in your home - where it belongs!* Both supply and return ducts must be sealed and insulated if in unconditioned space.
The rebate for a home that is total electric is the total cost of duct sealing up to $500; if the home has gas with a central air system or heat pump, the rebate is the total cost of duct sealing up to $250.
Water Heater Program
The 2014 Water Heater Program applies to any new, electric water heater (i.e. new home, gas replacement, electric replacement). Being energy efficient has never been more important. The rebates offered by the REMC encourage and reward purchasing equipment that meets specific energy standards. Being efficient and reducing our demand and consumption of energy can be met through many technological advancements. From changing light bulbs to CFLs, purchasing Energy Star compliant appliances and replacing old inefficient heating and cooling equipment with high efficiency units can all make a big change in our nation’s energy consumption.
Pick up some cold cash when we pick up your old fridge.
Get $50 back when you recycle your old fridge PLUS save up to $150 a year in energy costs.
It doesn't make financial sense to keep an old fridge or freezer in your garage or basement - not when it uses up to four times the energy of newer models. And throwing it away isn't a good long-term plan for the environment. Why not let us recyle it? We'll haul it away free of charge, you'll get a $30 rebate, and you can save up to $150 a year in energy costs. Talk about a good return on investment.
* Refrigerators and freezers must be in working condition, and must be between 10 and 30 cubic feet in size, using inside measurements. Hoosier Energy REC, Inc. contracts with JACO Environmental, an appliance recycler to pick up and recycle refrigerators and freezers that are in working condition. This program is funded by Hoosier Energy REC, Inc. on behalf of Clark County REMC and is available to its residential electric consumers in Indiana on a first-come, first-served basis until funding is expended. Customers must own the unit(s) being recycled. Limit two units per residential address. A check will be mailed to the Clark County REMC customer within 4-6 weeks after the appliance collection. Some restrictions apply.
