Residential Rebates

Our residential rebate program offers credit that goes straight to your cooperative bill when you make a qualifying, energy efficient upgrade to your home. 

Consolidated Cooperative is a not-for-profit organization owned by you, our members. That means that we operate in your best interest, which includes offering programs that help you use less energy.  When our members are more efficient, we are too. Less energy used means less energy purchased, and a lower load across our distribution system. In turn, costs stay low for everyone. 

What you need to know:

Our residential rebates are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. These rebates are for residential members only. Visit our Business Services page for information on rebates available to business members.

Rebate offers expire when funds are depleted or when the program is discontinued. Rebates must be claimed within 12 months of the purchase date unless otherwise specified. Rebates are valid only for new purchases; used items do not qualify. Limit one item per rebate per residence unless otherwise specified. 

Consolidated reserves the right to disqualify any rebate submissions that do not meet our residential rebate guidelines.

ENERGY STAR® and EnergyGuide

ENERGY STAR® and EnergyGuide are tools that help you purchase energy-efficient appliances. 

You have probably seen this yellow EnergyGuide label when you are shopping. While this label helps show you how much energy an appliance will use, it does not always mean that an appliance is ENERGY STAR® rated. Check for the ENERGY STAR® logo in the bottom right corner of the EnergyGuide, like it is in the picture below, or on the appliance packaging to ensure that it is an ENERGY STAR® appliance.

The Energy Guide label is a yellow, rectangular tag. This label shows the Energy Star logo in the bottom right corner.
