RushShelby Energy (RSE) has a long history of supporting members with rebate incentives to offset purchase costs of energy-efficient equipment. We’ve been able to do this with support from our generation and transmission cooperative, Hoosier Energy. Rebates are now available for electric water heaters, air-to-air/geothermal/mini-split heat pumps, HVAC tune-ups, and electric lawn equipment.

Rebates are for permanent residences only, which are occupied year-round (12 months).
