All-Electric New Construction Bonus - RESIDENTIAL
LPEA offers a $500 bonus to residential members building new all-electric homes.
A recent study by Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP) explores the benefits of going all electric. "SWEEP estimates that by eliminating the cost of the gas piping to the new home, the total initial cost of an all-electric new home with these efficient electric appliances will be about the same or slightly less than the cost of a gas-heated home with gas appliances. In addition, the annual heating costs (including hot water) for an all-electric home will be about 10% less than for the gas home, and the all-electric home’s carbon emissions will be about 60% less.
By installing electric space heating, an electric water heater, an electric cooktop/oven, and an electric clothes dryer, LPEA members are eligible for this $500 bonus on top of the other rebates available for each specific equipment type.
- Primary source of heat must be electric and sized to provide heat to the entire home (propane/natural gas backup is acceptable)
