City of Naperville issued the following announcement on Feb. 12.
The City of Naperville is offering qualified Naperville Electric Utility residential customers, both homeowners and renters, a rebate for energy-efficient central air conditioners installed between February 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021. The rebates are being offered, thanks to $16,800 in funding from the Illinois Municipal Electric Agency, Naperville’s power supplier. Limit one rebate per customer account.
To qualify for the rebate, central air conditioners must be purchased and installed between Feb. 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021. The rebate is based on the Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER), which measures the cooling efficiency of a central air conditioner. Central air conditioners with a SEER of 15 will receive a $300 rebate; a SEER of 16 will receive a $400 rebate; and a SEER of 18 will receive a $600 rebate. The Department of Energy suggests when replacing a central air conditioning unit to look for a SEER of at least 15.
The installation must pass a City of Naperville inspection and must be connected to a City of Naperville electric meter and billed under the appropriate residential electric rate.
An application form is available on the City’s website with detailed instructions on how to apply for the rebate. The rebate will appear as a credit on a customer’s utility bill, which should be posted after approximately two billing cycles. Completed applications must be submitted within 120 days of installation date.
