Home Energy Rebate Programs

The Home Efficiency Rebate Program and Home Electrification and Appliance Rebate Program, which are expected to launch once funding is received later this year, are designed to help Delawareans reduce home energy costs.

Once approved by the U.S. Department of Energy, these programs could potentially provide up to $66 million to Delawareans in the form of rebates across a wide range of energy efficiency and electrification measures, such as heat pumps, electric stoves, electric load service upgrades, insulation, air sealing, ventilation and more.

The funds would come from the federal Inflation Reduction Act.

Home Efficiency Rebates

The Home Efficiency Rebates will offer “whole house rebates” for energy efficiency improvements.

Rebate amounts will vary based on income and type of home and may range from $2,000 to $8,000 per home or unit.

Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates

The Home Electrification and Appliance Rebates will offer rebates for electric appliances and other efficiency measures.

Rebates are specifically targeted to low-income households and may range from $500 to $8,000 depending on the type of appliance or efficiency measure.

Types of measures that will be supported include:

  • Heat pump water heaters
  • Heat pumps for space heating and cooling
  • Electric stoves, cooktops, ranges, or ovens
  • Heat pump clothes dryers
  • Electrical load service center upgrades
  • Insulations, air sealing, and ventilation
  • Electric wiring
