2014 Member Energy Efficiency Programs

Orange County REMC offers member incentive programs which include payments to members who purchase qualifying equipment. These program payments will assist members in buying more efficient equipment to save money over the life of their purchase. Incentive payments will only apply to equipment installed and operating in the 2014 calendar year in homes or structures connected to Orange County REMC. Interpretation of qualifying equipment and installations are at the sole discretion of Orange County REMC.

To promote and support system-wide deployment of Hoosier Energy’s Energy Management System all member discounts or rebate payments for water heaters or HVAC systems require installation of an EM switch as a qualification to receive the benefit.

Under the guidelines of the 2014 program, members who pay their electric bill in the office before the penalty date can receive free CFL bulbs by bringing non-perishable food items for the local food bank for an exchange. Members taking advantage of this program can avoid late penalties and reduce future lighting costs.
