2019 Energize Delaware Rebates

The Energize Delaware Equipment rebate program is back! Energize Delaware Equipment rebates have undergone some major changes since this time last year. We’ve listed all of the most recent information – including a PDF of the full list of available rebates – below. Burns & McBride was awarded the Energy Star Century Club Award in 2018 for our work with this program.

What is Energize Delaware?

Energize Delaware is sponsored by the Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility to help you save energy and money.  The program provides rebates – up to $1,300 for a qualifying furnace, air conditioner and thermostats – on equipment upgrades that improve the energy efficiency of a home. To learn if your desired home upgrade qualifies, contact us. Through the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program, more than 5,000 Delaware property owners have taken advantage of the program to lower their energy costs and make their homes safe and more comfortable.
