Additional details

We offer VRF heat pump rebates based on equipment capacity (tonnage). To receive the rebate you must work with a contractor participating in the Energize CT Heat Pump Installer Network. Once your installation is complete, claim an energy optimization rebate through our online rebate portal or by mail.

How to get started

Check Eligibility

  • Rebates are available to commercial and industrial electric service customers. All commercial and industrial customers of Eversource or UI can participate.
  • Equipment must be installed in the service territory of the participating utility.


For additional energy optimization rebates:

  • Equipment must be installed by a contractor participating in the Energize CT Heat Pump Installer Network.
  • Equipment must replace oil, propane, natural gas, or electric baseboard as the primary heating system. If an existing oil, propane, or natural gas system will be left in place, an integrated control must be installed.
  • For Eversource customers, rebate amount will not exceed 100% of the total installation cost. For United Illuminating customers, rebate amount will not exceed 75% of the total installation cost.

Technical Details

  • Equipment must be AHRI rated and must be on the Qualified Products List.
  • Tonnage is based on AHRI cooling capacity. (1 ton = 12,000 BTUs). Tonnage is calculated by dividing AHRI cooling capacity by ton and rounding to two decimal places. 

For Pre-Approval on Energy Optimization Rebates:

  • Projects totaling more than 30 tons for Eversource or more than 10 tons or $25,000 in rebates for United Illuminating require pre-approval. 
  • Projects totaling ≤ 30 tons will continue to be eligible for rebate amounts found on the form
  • Projects totaling between 30 and 150 tons are eligible for rebate tiers found here: C&I Heat Pump Rebate Tier Chart
  • Projects totaling greater than 150 tons will be evaluated independent of this prescriptive rebate format and a custom rebate will be applied
  • To request pre-approval, please email CTRebates@resource-innovations.com
