2020 Energize Delaware Rebates

The Energize Delaware Equipment rebate program is something you need to know about. Energize Delaware Equipment rebates have undergone some major changes since this time last year – including for the first time being offered to customer’s who heat their home with oil or propane and have warm air furnaces. 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 the second year in a row in 2019 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 by paying for some of the cost of high efficiency equipment.  The program provides rebates – up to $1,300 for a qualifying furnace, air conditioner and thermostats – on equipment upgrades that cut the energy use of your 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.
