AEP (Central and SWEPCO) - Coolsaver A/C Tune Up or Replacement

August 11, 2023


Residential customers are eligible to receive an instant rebate from a participating A/C contractor for installing high performance A/C systems. Incentives are based on the tonnage and efficiency (SEER) of the new system installed. Only system replacements are eligible. The residential incentives are as follows:

Tons     16     17     18
1.5     $120     $180     $240

Residential and small commercial HVAC contractors that service customers served by SWEPCO may apply to participate. Contractors that wish to participate enter into a contractor partnering agreement that specifies the program requirements. Contractors are trained on the A/C tune-up process and provided incentives and discounts on the cost of field equipment designed to diagnose and quantify energy savings opportunities. Energy savings are captured through the correction of A/C system inefficiencies identified during the tune-up activities. At this time, residential and small commercial customers of SWEPCO are eligible to receive incentives in this program.
