Earlier this year, the Arkansas Public Service Commission ordered CenterPoint Energy, Arkansas Oklahoma Gas Corp., and Arkansas Western gas to develop energy efficiency incentive programs. The current programs will last until June 2011.
Depending on the level of efficiency, customers of the three utilities are eligible for rebates of $150 to $300 on the purchases of new efficient furnaces or space-heating systems. They can also receive $50 to $250 rebates on efficient water heaters.
Customers can combine utility rebates with those offered by the Arkansas Energy Star Appliance Rebate Program. The state’s program offers a $300 rebate on a new Energy Star water heater.
