ENERGY STAR APPLIANCE, AIR-SOURCE HEAT PUMP & CENTRAL AC REBATES

The Town of Danvers offers rebates on a variety of Energy Star appliances, Central ACs and Air Source Heat Pump systems (ducted and ductless mini-split). Your purchase and electric account must meet the terms & conditions and eligibility requirements outlined below to qualify for a rebate. 

For fastest processing:

Submit your application via the Rebate Application Portal. Enter your account & item information, upload required documents, and receive email notifications as your application moves through the process. For a preview of the portal application, consult the Danvers Appliance Rebate Application or Danvers ASHP & Central AC Application. You may also submit paper applications via mail but your processing time will be longer (processing time 10-12 weeks.) 

Rebate terms & conditions and item-specific information is below. Paper applications are available from Danvers’ town offices: Business Division, 2 Burroughs Street or DPW Admin Office at 1 Sylvan Street. 

Accountholder terms & conditions:

  • The maximum amount of rebates is $300 per year for appliances. Appliances include thermostats, window or room ACs, dehumidifiers, refrigerators, and heat pump water heaters.
  • The max amount for air source heat pumps and central AC systems is $2000. A system is defined by the number of outdoor units and ranges from $250 to $500 per unit, depending on the system’s efficiency ratings.
  • Electrical account must be active, residential, and in good standing.
  • Purchase must be installed at accountholder’s address.
  • Allow DED to inspect your installation if it deems necessary.
  • Purchase must be made within the current calendar year.
  • Applications for the current calendar year must be received at Energy New England by Jan. 31 of the following year.
  • Rebates are subject to available funds and can expire anytime.
  • DED can also terminate the program at any time it chooses.
  • DED assumes no liability whatsoever for your purchase, its installation, or performance.

Appliance/Heat Pump/Central AC requirements:

  • Thermostats, window or room ACs, dehumidifiers, refrigerators, and heat pump water heaters must be Energy Star certified. Certified products will show the Energy Star logo on the yellow Energy Guide label that is usually attached to appliances (dehumidifiers and clothes dryers don’t come with an energy guide label.) You will need to provide proof of Energy Star certification regardless of the label’s presence. Below are other sources of proof to include with your application.
    • Printed or uploaded screen shot of appliance model on the Energy Star product look-up website: https://www.energystar.gov/products/energy-star-most-efficient. Search your model by type, brand, and model number.
    • Online: Retailers usually provide a link to more detailed product specifications. But, retailers can be wrong. The best proof is the Energy Star logo on the Energy Guide or the Energy Star product look-up site.
  • Heat pumps and central AC systems must meet certain efficiency ratings: SEER*, HSPF,** and EER. If you are unfamiliar with these products, ask your installer to locate this information and list it on the itemized invoice.

*The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) measures a cooling system’s efficiency. A higher SEER number signifies higher system efficiency.

**The Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF) measures an air source heat pump’s efficiency . A higher HSPF number signifies higher system efficiency.
