Berkeley Electric Cooperative (BEC) offers several rebates to residential customers for energy efficiency upgrades. The H2O Advantage Water Heater Rebate Program offers a rebate of up to $300 for energy efficient electric water heaters with a load management switch. BEC must inspect the water heater and install the load management switch prior to awarding the rebate. A rebate of $500 is also available to customers who purchase and install a dual fuel heating system.

Berkley Electric Cooperative also provides residential rebates for geothermal heat pumps through the Earth Connect Program. Residents who install geothermal heat pumps in either new or existing homes can receive $250 per ton from BEC, up to a maximum rebate of $1,250.

For more information on these programs, see the program web site or contact BEC directly.
