Dominion Virginia Power offers summer rebate programs

Dominion Virginia Power offers multiple rebate programs and tips that can empower customers to manage their energy bills during the summer months. Simple actions at home can help homeowners make significant reductions in their energy consumption, resulting in lower bills.

“When it comes to saving money on your energy bills, a little know-how can go a long way,” said Ken Barker, Vice President of Technical Solutions. “Dominion offers multiple incentives to help customers make their homes more energy efficient and take charge of their summer bills.”


Home Energy Check-Up

Customers who complete a Home Energy Check-Up receive a report detailing how money could be saved around the home. Each customer, on average, receives a $230 incentive for the installation of energy saving devices, including:


Heat Pump Tune-Up

The Heat Pump Tune-Up program gives customers a $90 rebate for having maintenance completed on their heat pump. A tune-up can help your unit run more efficiently, prolong the life of existing equipment, and provide better temperature control.


Heat Pump Upgrade

Customers can have their existing heat pump replaced with a more efficient unit to receive a rebate for their purchase. Rebates range from $200 to $250 depending on the heat pump’s efficiency. A heat pump upgrade can help save money in the long run; more efficient models use less energy to cool your home.


Residential Appliance Recycling Program

Through its new Residential Appliance Recycling Program, Dominion Virginia Power is making it easy for customers to recycle their old refrigerators and freezers. Dominion will pick up and recycle appliances at no cost and customers will receive a $50incentive for participating.

Service performed for Dominion Virginia Power’s energy conservation programs must be completed by a participating contractor, who will determine the cost of the work. Rebates and customer’s out-of-pocket costs will vary based on work completed. For additional information about energy conservation programs, visit
