Energy Efficiency Rebates

OEC is committed to helping our members make wise energy choices, conserve electricity and save money. We recommend you:

  • select an EnergySTAR®-rated product;

  • get at least three bids before contracting the work; and

  • verify your heat and air company is qualified to install heat pumps.

Only OEC members qualify for rebates, and the following conditions must be met:

  • rebate claim must be made within six months of installation;

  • equipment must be new;

  • a copy of the sales slip or work order and a copy of the product rating certificate showing the AHRI reference number (to verify equipment meets energy efficiency standards) must be submitted along with OEC’s Rebate Request Form (available here); and

  • member must arrange for an inspection with Daniel Lofland. Call (405) 850-0127 to set up an appointment.
