Conservation Advisory Commission Launches "Super Rebate" Program

Super Rebate

The City of Newark's Conservation Advisory Commission (CAC) is excited to launch its first-ever "super rebate" program for residents who purchase qualified energy efficient window air conditioning units. The CAC contributed $10,000 to the pilot program and each rebate will add $100 to the $50 rebate already provided by Efficiency Smart. Rebates will be issued in the form of a utility bill credit.
Newark electric customers who purchase a qualifying ENERGY STAR window air conditioning units must first submit a completed rebate form along with sales receipt to Efficiency Smart. Following confirmation of the purchase, Efficiency Smart will inform the City. The Payment & Utility Billing division will then confirm eligibility and apply the credit to an upcoming utility bill. Eligible customers will receive written confirmation of the super rebate and bill credit.
"The CAC set specific goals for 2023 focused on sustainability in the community, including energy efficiency in moderate- and lower-income households," said Sheila Smith, CAC chair.
"These rebates are designed to help folks afford more energy-efficient equipment while also making our environment healthier. The existing rebate is generous, but for lower-income Newarkers, it didn't seem enough to put the energy efficient appliances within reach. The super-rebates will change that -- just in time for the hot summer months, when people will really rely on their ACs," added co-chair Helga Huntley.
Residents must be an electric customer of the City of Newark to be eligible. There is a limit of two $100 utility bill credits per household through Newark’s Super Rebate program. The combined rebate and utility bill credit cannot exceed the purchase price of the air conditioning unit.  

The Conservation Advisory Commission advises City Council in the development, management and protection of its natural resources with appropriate consideration of Newark's human and economic resources.

Efficiency Smart helps residents, businesses and communities use less energy and save money. Their services empower residents to lower their electric bills and make their homes more comfortable. This includes discounts on energy-efficient lighting, rebates for energy-saving appliances and guidance on reducing electric use.
