GCEA has partnered with Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association to expand our Energy Efficiency Rebate Program. Members may receive rebates for any of the energy efficiency measures listed in the table below that are installed in GCEA's service area. 

Proof of purchase such as receipt and/or invoice, Energy Guide label showing Energy Star certified for appliances except electric water heater, Lighting Facts label showing lumens for LEDs, and signed application required. All rebates must be requested within 120 days of installation.

If you are unsure if your appliance is Energy Star certified, visit Energy Star's Product Finder. Choose your appliance and enter the manufacturer of the appliance and its model number to verify eligibility. 

Upon approval, rebate checks will be issued by GCEA and sent to the member.
