Central New Mexico Electric Cooperative (CNMEC) provides an incentive for its residential members to purchase energy efficient water heaters, clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators, and freezers. The rebate applies to both new and replacement installations. The equipment must be installed in the CNMEC service area and in a home on a permanent foundation. Participating members can receive a $70 rebate for installing a water heater which meets the minimum program standards, and a bonus $50 if the unit is controlled by a timer or is equipped with a low-wattage (3kW or less) element, and another bonus $50 if it is covered by a lifetime warranty. Refrigerators and freezers must be Energy Star rated to qualify for the $80 rebate. In order to see rebate forms, view the "services" tab on the program web site listed above and select rebates. Rebate must be requested within 180 days of installation to be eligible. Contact CNMEC for more information.
