Modesto Irrigation District’s Home Rebate Program offers residential customers cash rebates for the purchase and installation of qualifying energy efficient products installed in existing homes. Eligible equipment includes air conditioners, heat pumps, appliances, insulation measures, radiant barriers, VSM handlers, whole house fans, solar attic fans, sunscreens, and window replacements. Rebates are available for equipment meeting program efficiency standards which were purchased within the eligible time period. The program expires on December 15 of the program year.

These rebates do not apply to new home construction. However, for newly constructed homes, qualifying measures purchased and installed after the certificate of occupancy has been issued by the city or county are eligible for rebates under this program. Furthermore, additions to existing homes are eligible for this program provided that the addition does not exceed 20% of the pre-existing floor area.

Customers who wish to participate in this program must send a completed application packet and any necessary photocopies of the original itemized and dated invoice or sales receipt to MID's Energy Management Department. A program catalog with specific equipment requirements and the program application can be found on the program web site.
