Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) provides residential customers with rebates on the ENERGY STAR-qualified appliances and energy efficient HVAC equipment. Eligible appliance purchases include refrigerators/freezers, washing machines, air conditioners, and heat pump/storage water heaters. The program is limited to one rebate per appliance per residential electric utility account. High efficiency heat pump water heaters are eligible for a rebate of up to $500. Rebates are also available for central AC systems as well as air-source and geothermal heat pumps; incentive amounts vary according to equipment size and efficiency level.

In addition, NPU customers may be eligible to participate in the free-of-charge Residential Home Energy Savings Program. This program entails a home visit by a NPU technician who may conduct a blower door test to identify and eliminate air leaks in the home, replace customers' incandescent light bulbs with new CFL bulbs, install low-flow shower heads, sink aerators to lower water consumption, pipe wrap hot water heaters and generally conduct an inspection of energy usage, all at no cost to the customer. Visit the utility's web site for additional information on all programs, or contact NPU directly.
