ColdCa$h for POW&R to benefit propane, oil & wood-heated homes, plus rentals in Thurston, Grays Harbor, Mason, Lewis & Pacific
Thurston Energy has recently launched a new weatherization rebate, ColdCa$h for POW&R. Designed specifically for homes that are heated with propane, oil or wood, and/or are rental homes, this rebate can help property owners save on the cost of weatherization projects, and the purchase and installation of ductless heat pump systems.
In order to be eligible for this rebate, homes must be located in Thurston, Grays Harbor, Mason, Lewis or Pacific counties and be primarily heated by Propane, Oil, or Wood, AND/OR be a Rental. Two rebates are included in this promotion:
- REBATE 1: Weatherization: Rebate of 40% of price paid for weatherization improvement services (and materials), up to a maximum rebate amount of $2000. Qualifying measures to increase building envelope performance include Air Sealing; Insulation (attics, walls, floors, ducts); Electrical wiring upgrades associated with insulation measures; Whole house ventilation; and Duct sealing.
- REBATE 2: Ductless Heat Pump: Rebates for the purchase and installation of a Single-Head Ductless Heat Pump (DHP) System, with a limit of one rebate per house. Homes heated with propane, fuel oil or wood are eligible for a $1500 rebate, and rental homes heated with electricity are eligible for a $1500 rebate.
Customers should contact Thurston Energy (360-528-2112) prior to making improvements in order to make arrangements for an initial energy evaluation, to connect with a pre-approved contractor, and to assure that the project scope of work qualifies for rebates.
Weatherization improvements must be completed between January 1, 2015 and May 31, 2015, and funds are available for a limited time only. For more information about ColdCa$h for POW&R, and to get started, please contact:
