Energy Efficiency Rebates


Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps

To help make our members' homes more energy efficient, Snapping Shoals EMC is offering rebates for members who replace their current central air conditioners and heat pumps. Qualifying units must have at least a 16 SEER rating. SEER stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio, which defines the efficiency of air conditioners and heat pumps.


Water Heaters

Members switching from a gas water heater to a conventional electric or heat pump water heater may be eligible for a $400 rebate. Members switching from a standard electric water heater to a heat pump water heater may be eligible for a $200 rebate. The water heater must be at least 50 gallons, which is recommended by most manufacturers for a standard residential home, in order to receive the rebate.


Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Systems

SSEMC offers a rebate to residential members who install qualifying photovoltaic systems, also known as solar PV power systems. The rebate is designed to help offset a portion of the initial installation cost of the system. Members who qualify for the program are eligible to receive a one-time rebate of $350 per kW up to a maximum of 10kW ($3,500).


Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Members may also be eligible for a $400 rebate to offset the cost of purchasing and installing an electric vehicle charging station. The charging station must be installed on a dedicated circuit in a home served by Snapping Shoals EMC. Invoices and a site visit to verify installation are also required. Charging station adapters do not qualify for this rebate.


Rebate programs may end or change at any time. All programs are subject to verification from SSEMC. For more details and to find out if you qualify, call 770-786-3484.
