Pennyrile RECC offers residential customers in new and existing homes cash incentives to encourage energy efficiency. For customers in existing homes, Pennyrile RECC will pay a $100 incentive if a new electric heat pump that is at least 13.0 SEER is installed in a home by a participating 'Quality Contractor'. An eligible heat pump that is not installed by a participating contractor can receive a $50 cash rebate. If a participating contractor installs an advanced heat pump or a geothermal system, the customer is eligible for a $200 rebate. Customers may also receive a $50 incentive for installing an electric water heater in existing homes. In addition to this rebate program, Pennyrile RECC offers a loan program for customers to install energy efficient heat pumps.

For customers building new homes, Pennyrile RECC offers an advanced water heater incentive of $100. Customers who install an electric air source heat pump in new homes are eligible for a $200 rebate, and customers who install a geothermal or advanced dual compressor heat pump in new homes can receive $400 per unit.

In addition, the Pennyrile New Home Program encourages customers to build homes that meet energy efficiency standards by providing cash incentives.
