Partnering with TVA, Sand Mountain Electric Cooperative offers rebates for new and existing homes. Cash incentives are offered to the new homeowner through the energy right® program. Points on a computer software program rate each home. This computer software program rates the energy efficiency of a new home based on certain features. If the home is all-electric with a high-efficiency heat pump installed by a SMEC certified contractor, Sand Mountain Electric Cooperative and the Tennessee Valley Authority will pay the homeowner a cash incentive.

Existing homes that install a high-efficiency heat pump or a high-efficiency water heater with a SMEC contractor may also be eligible for a rebate. Consumers may only qualify for one heat pump or water heater rebate per year, per home.
