PPCS offers multiple avenues for our members to lower energy bills, increase energy efficiency and conservation, and help our environment through our Electric$ense rebates and incentives.
Look for the Energy Star logo on refrigerators, freezers, clothes washers, electric clothes dryers, dishwashers, and dehumidifiers.
Why install a high efficiency refrigerator or freezer then put the old working energy hog in the garage for a beverage cooler? Why not recycle with a reputable dealer and receive a rebate. PPCS also offers a rebate for recycling an old working window air conditioner.
Consider upgrading to an air-source heat pump for your cooling needs. Bonus - receive a high efficiency heating source in the fall, spring, and warmer winter days.
Have you ever thought about installing a high efficiency ground source heat pump? Now may be the time; PPCS offers rebates and federal tax credits are available.
PPCS offers rebates ranging from $400 to $800 on residential charging stations. The charging station must be connected to PPCS' load management system. Learn more about how PPCS supports electric vehicles.
Time for upgrading faucets/shower heads? Look for low flow fixtures and receive a rebate.

Shower - 2.5 gpm or less
Looking for an easy way to manage "phantom load"? PPCS offers a rebate for the purchase of Smart WiFi Power Strips.
Uncomfortable in your home? High heating/cooling costs? Consider scheduling a home performance test. This is a blower door/infrared test that determines heat loss in your home. Rebates and incentives for energy efficiency improvements based on your test results are available through PPCS' Electric$ense and our partnership with Focus on Energy.
Managed water heating requires a water heater capacity of at least 50 gallons. Water heating is interrupted to a maximum of six hours a day (based on your water heater capacity) during periods of high electrical demand or during system emergencies.
Rebates may apply if the unit is 75 gallons or larger and is connected to PPCS' load management system. General service rates apply. The water heater can be purchased from PPCS or any vendor.
Help extend the life of your water heater by installing a WaterRight water softening system.
PPCS' off-peak electric water heating program gives you a reduced electric rate if you also use some form of off-peak storage or dual fuel electric heat (5-kilowatt minimum). To receive the low off-peak electric rate, the water heater is metered separately.
Rebates may apply if the unit is 75 gallons or larger and is connected to PPCS' load management system. Off-peak electric rates are available with this program. The water heater can be purchased from PPCS or any vendor that meets the energy efficiency requirements.
PPCS can help you keep every room in your home cozy and comfortable with safe, energy efficient electric heating systems. Whether it's electric radiant floor heat or electric thermal storage heating systems, with our off-peak storage heating rates, PPCS can help you get the most out of your heating dollars.
Water quality can affect the performance and useful life of your household appliances. Hard water scale can build up in your water heater, dishwasher, washing machine and even your plumbing pipes, costing you money because of unwanted service calls and replacement parts. You might even need to buy a completely new appliance.
Water-Right® systems from PPCS can bring your water quality to a new level and save you money. The first step in selecting a system that is right for you is to test your water, and we’ll do it for free. Contact us today for your FREE water test!
