Current Programs and Initiatives

Updated as of October 1, 2013


2013-2014 Residential Electric Rebate Application

Beginning October 1, 2013, there are some changes to the UC's Residential Electric Rebate Program.

  • Customers are required to have an electric HVAC system (not natural gas) to be eligible for the rebates, as all of these energy efficiency initiatives work to reduce the HVAC system’s workload.
  • The window solar screen rebate is now $1.50 per square foot.
  • The Central AC Rebate requires a 16 SEER or higher system, with no requirement for a variable speed air handler (still needs programmable digital thermostat). 3 ton and under is $300 now and over 3-ton is $500.
  • The Cool Roof Rebate is based on the square footage of conditioned living space and, like the Added Insulation Rebate, will be validated through the Volusia County Property Appraiser’s website.

See application for complete information on the rebate program.

2013-2014 Commercial Electric Rebate Application

Beginning October 1, 2013, there are some changes to the UC's Commercial Electric Rebate Program.
