Water Heater Rebates
A free Radio-Controlled Switch or RCS must be installed on the water heater to receive the rebate. The switch allows Hancock-Wood to turn off a Member's water heater for a few hours during peak use times, which helps to keep rates stabilized for all Members. Typically, Members are not measurably affected because the switches are activated at the start of the brief control period when there is a full tank of hot water.
Rebate for new homes and fuel-to-electric conversions (natural gas, propane or fuel oil). Heat-pump water heaters and on-demand water heaters are not eligible for this program.
Hancock-Wood's rebate budget is limited; offer expires when funds are depleted on a first come, first served basis, or when the program is discontinued.
