Click HERE to complete our online residential application (example below). Be sure to follow the instructions on the application. All applicable residential rebates are listed on the application.


Receipts are required as proof of purchase, and in some cases the packaging, or photo of the packaging may be required to prove ENERGY STAR® certification. Please double check before throwing anything away.

A rebate check will be mailed to the person listed on the TCL&P account and take 6-8 weeks to receive. If an account is not in good standing at the time of rebate approval, the rebate will be applied towards your TCL&P account.


Get Paid to Recycle!!

Did you know old refrigerators and freezers use two to three times as much energy as newer models? This can add up to $150 a year to your electric bill. 

You can receive $75 in rebates when you recycle your inefficient refrigerator or freezer. All we require is that it is running.

TCL&P has an extensive commercial rebate program that offers incentives for everything from LED lighting* upgrades to ENERGY STAR® kitchen equipment and HVAC systems. Download our application to see everything we have to offer or contact us to discuss your new project.

If you don’t see it on our application, it doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t qualify for a rebate. We can customize rebates if there is a project that saves electricity but doesn’t necessarily fall under a category on our application. 

*To qualify, lighting must be used at least 1,800 hours per year and other equipment must operate at least 1,500 hours per year

**Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis while annual funds are available. 

***A pre-approval is required to reserve funding for most projects, an inspection of the project may be required once the project is complete and in some cases before work begins. Please contact TCLP to verify before starting work. If a pre-approval is required and work is already completed, TCLP may deny the rebate application.
