UEF: Uniform Energy Factor

TE: Thermal Efficiency

* Cannot exceed 100 percent of cost.

Starting June 12, 2017, the Department of Energy (DOE) implemented new energy efficiency standards for water heaters. The old metric was Energy Factor, or EF. The new metric is UEF or Uniform Energy Factor. They are not the same. Effective 9/1/2018, all rebates are issued based on the AHRI database certification UEF criteria.

Please reference all rebate requirements prior to installation to ensure eligibility. To apply for a rebate, download and fill out the water heating equipment rebate application.

Funding is limited and can change or end at any time. Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
