Program Overview

Find out how to take advantage of rebates when you purchase high efficiency equipment, or make selected energy efficiency improvements.

Key Benefits

  • Replacing older, less efficient equipment with ENERGY STAR qualified equipment can reduce energy use and cost, and improve your home’s comfort.
  • Asking your contractor to inspect and evaluate your home's duct system and seal, insulate, and/or repair it as needed can maximize the efficiency of your new equipment.


  • You must be a Dominion Energy South Carolina electric residential customer to be eligible.
  • Rebates vary according to the type and efficiency level of the equipment installed.
  • Newly installed heating and cooling equipment must be of the same type as the unit being replaced.
  • While South Carolina code requires duct leakage testing with a duct blaster for complete duct replacement, Dominion Energy SC also requires the same testing for duct sealing.
  • This program does not allow fuel switching. (Example: Central air conditioners must be replaced with central air conditioners and heat pumps must be replaced with heat pumps. Converting from a central air conditioner, gas furnace, or gas pack to an electric heat pump does not qualify for the rebate.)
  • This program does not provide rebates for new equipment that does not replace old equipment of the same type. Ground source heat pumps do not qualify for rebates.

Converting to natural gas? You may be eligible for up to a $200 bill credit.

No, you must receive residential electric service from Dominion Energy South Carolina to be eligible for the EnergyWise Heating & Cooling rebate program. However, if you convert to natural gas heat or water heat, you may be eligible for a $200 bill credit from Dominion Energy SC. If you convert to a natural gas cooktop or logs, you may be eligible for a $50 bill credit. See available gas rebates.
Under the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 which was signed in February 2018, a number of tax credits for residential energy efficiency that had expired at the end of 2016 were renewed. Tax credits for non-business energy property are now available retroactive to purchases made through December 31, 2017. CLICK HERE for information about federal tax credits.
Yes, a licensed mechanical contractor must perform your HVAC equipment installation and ductwork improvement(s). We do not provide rebates for self-installed or DIY projects. While South Carolina code requires duct leakage testing with a duct blaster for complete duct replacement, Dominion Energy also requires the same testing for duct sealing.
You must submit your completed paperwork within 90 days of installation.
All rebates are paid by check to the account holder.
The average processing time is 4-6 weeks. Please be aware that during peak heating and cooling seasons we receive a large volume of applications. To ensure your check will be delivered in a timely manner, please use the checklist provided with each application.
If the installed equipment does not match the removed equipment, this is called “fuel switching”. Fuel switching occurs when an old HVAC unit of a certain fuel type (electricity or gas) is replaced with a new unit that uses a different fuel type. (Ex. If you replace an old gas unit with a new electric heat pump, this is considered fuel switching.)
AHRI (Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute) is the most trusted source of performance certification for HVAC equipment. AHRI tests the performance of equipment and assigns a unique identifying number, which can then be used to look up performance information to include the SEER, EER and HSPF ratings. Your HVAC contractor should provide the AHRI number on your application.
Since our program follows ENERGY STAR® guidelines, we revised our minimum efficiency requirements to meet the ENERGY STAR® minimum efficiency level, which is now 15 SEER.
No. Ground source heat pumps are not eligible for a rebate. However, please consult your tax advisor for information regarding home improvement tax credits which may cover ground source heat pumps.
