High Efficiency Electric Home Rebate Program (State Energy Program)

Federal Agency


Office of State and Community Energy Programs (SCEP)


To help State Energy Offices develop and implement programs in which eligible, income-qualified electrification projects will be rebated at the point of sale.

Applicant and/or Project Eligibility Requirements

Eligible purchases include heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, heat pump dryers, electric stoves/ranges/ovens, electric load service center upgrades, insulation, air sealing, ventilation, and electric wiring. This program covers 100% of project costs (up to $14,000) for low-income households and 50% (up to $14,000) for moderate-income households.

Decarbonization Considerations

This program funds a variety of rebates that can be combined with existing programs to spread the market for efficient electric technologies.

Equity Considerations

This program can be used to increase the efficiency of low-income households, reducing bills, and providing weatherization that can improve the health and comfort of eligible residents. This program is income-qualified, such that those making 80-150% of AMI are rebated up to 50% of project costs and those making less than 80% of AMI are rebated up to 100%.

Helpful Tips

Local governments should work with State Energy Offices to ensure rebate funds are seamlessly disbursed and able to be blended with existing non-federal incentive programs.

Other Notes

This program cannot be combined with other federal rebate programs.
