Rebates: Residential


RushShelby Energy has a long history of supporting members with rebate incentives to offset purchase costs of energy efficient equipment.  We've been able to do this with support from our generation and transmission cooperative, Hoosier Energy.  Rebates are now available for electric water heaters, air-to-air/geothermal/minisplit heat pumps, HVAC tune ups, and electric lawn equipment.  Download the rebate request form (PDF).

Print off the form, complete the requested information, sign it and return it to RushShelby Energy with the necessary documentation.

Please also download and read the Terms and Conditions of the program.

A short summary of the 2021 incentive program is listed below, but you will need to download the rebate request form to get all the details and conditions for each rebate.

HVAC Tune-up Program

It's time to schedule your annual pre-season heating, air conditioning equipment (HVAC) check up with a licensed HVAC contractor to ensure your system is operating efficiently.  Tune-ups cannot be self-performed.

The HVAC tune up rebate is designed for air source heat pumps and central air conditioning systems.  Gas furnaces are not eligible unless part of the central air system.  The incentive will be offered on a first come-first serve basis.

Electric Lawn Equipment Rebate

Yor cooperative is now offering rebates on electric lawn mowers, leaf blowers and string trimmers.  Whether you search online or stop by the local hardware store, we want you to find equipment to keep your lawn well maintained.  When shopping, look for manufacturers who use lithium-ion batteries as they provide the power you expect and charge quickly.  If you need a new push mower, be sure to choose a model that runs on at least 36 volts.

The brand you choose is up to you, as well as where you make the purchase - we trust you know what need and respect where you want to shop.  The incentive will be offered on a first come-first serve basis.
