Enhanced rebates on heat pumps, electric bikes and electric mowers end Aug. 31

Enhanced rebates on products that help save energy and money while reducing carbon pollution will close at the end of the month. Green Mountain Power’s (GMP) popular “Go, Save and Share Green” initiative increased rebates on electric mowers, electric bikes, heat pumps and heat pump water heaters. To get the larger rebates, customers need proof of purchase on or before Aug. 31.

GMP launched the package of increased incentives in May to help customers save money while also helping local Vermont businesses who sell and install these products. Customers have responded by buying thousands of products from local businesses and working with installers across the state. More than 1,280 heat pumps have been sold so far, according to a Aug. 13 news release.

“It is great to see how this is delivering for customers. Not only do these programs help customers save money while boosting business for local companies, it is also helping to lower costs for all our customers and carbon emissions, too, which is so important now more than ever,” said Mari McClure, president and CEO of GMP.

After August, rebates will return to the original amount and be extended through the end of the year.

Enhanced rebates include:

Heat pump, $800 (was $400)

Heat pump water heater, $200 (can combine with up to $600 from Efficiency Vermont)

Electric bike, $300 (was $200)

Electric mower, $75 (was $50)
