Rock Hill residential electric customers can achieve energy and home maintenance savings through the SmartChoice customer incentives program. SmartChoice offers cash rebates, low-interest loans and an "all-electric" billing rate.

Water Heater Replacement
Customers installing a new 40 gallon electric water heater are eligible for a $225 rebate. 

Heat Pump Replacement
Customers replacing their existing heating systems with a minimum 16 SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating) electric heat pump are eligible for a $400 rebate (see note below). Financing is available on electric heat pump installations at a low interest rate of 6% for a maximum 60 months (pending loan application approval).

NOTE:  Installations of 14 or 15 SEER will be honored through November 30, 2018, if heat pump was purchased prior to October 1, 2018.  Proof of purchase will be required.

To qualify for these incentives, all new and existing electric water heaters are required to have a Smart Switch load management device. Installation of a Smart Switch is free.

Great Rate
Customers who qualify as all-electric and energy efficient qualify for the Great Rate, the lowest residential electric rate offered by the City.  This all electric rate can lower your winter energy costs up to 4 cents per kilowatt hour during winter heating months.  The customer must have an electric water heater with a Smart Switch and a minimum 16 SEER heat pump to be eligible.

NOTE:  Installations of 14 or 15 SEER will be honored through November 30, 2018, if heat pump was purchased prior to October 1, 2018.  Proof of purchase will be required.

To qualify for these incentives, all new and existing electric water heaters are required to have a Smart Switch load management device. Installation of a Smart Switch is free.

Customers must obtain a mechanical building permit for a water heater or heat pump installation/replacement.
