New Hampshire - Residential Energy-Efficient Home Heating System Rebate Program

November 19, 2010


Note: This program has closed as of November 9, 2010. Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is providing a total of $300 million to U.S. states, U.S. territories and the District of Columbia to establish rebate programs for new energy-efficient appliances that replace existing appliances in homes. Each state and territory has designed its own program. Rebates will be available until the state program's funding is exhausted. Be sure to confirm that rebate funds are still available in your state before making purchasing decisions. New Hampshire is utilizing its allocation of the State Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program (SEEARP) to provide two rebate programs. The "Home Heating System Rebate Program" provides rebates for new hot water heaters, boilers, and furnaces that are replacing existing, less-efficient systems. This program is available to New Hampshire residents for systems in their primary residence. Rebates of between $100 and $1000 are available depending on the system and efficiency installed. The Home Heating System Rebate Program is offered by NH utilities as of April 19, 2010. To help facilitate the process, the website provides additional information as well as rebate forms. The second program is a solar hot water heater rebate program, which is administered by the NH Public Utilities Commission in conjunction with the state solar hot water heater rebate program.
