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.

Eligibility

  • You must be an SCE&G 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.
  • 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.)

Natural Gas Rebates

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

No, you must receive residential electric service from SCE&G 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 SCE&G. If you convert to a natural gas cooktop or logs, you may be eligible for a $50 bill credit. See available gas rebates.
A number of tax credits for residential energy efficiency have been renewed to include the purchase of new ENERGY STAR® qualified heating and cooling equipment. These tax credits are available for purchases made in 2016, as well as retroactive to purchases made in 2015. SCE&G does not offer assistance with federal tax credits and recommends that you consult with your tax advisor to determine eligibility. CLICK HERE for information about federal tax credits.
Yes, a licensed mechanical contractor must perform your HVAC equipment installation and duct work improvement(s). We do not provide rebates for self-installed or DIY projects.
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.
