2015 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 2015 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 (except geothermal) require installation of an EM switch as a qualification to receive the benefit.

Details of the progam are listed on the incentive payment request form (PDF). You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the file. Please print off the form, compete the requested information, sign it and submit it with the proper documentation.

A summary of the 2015 programs is listed below, but you will need to download the rebate request form to get all the details and conditions for each rebate. Contact the Orange County REMC office for more information, or if you have trouble downloading the payment request forms. Email us, or call 812-865-2229 or toll free 1-888-337-5900.
