Electric Panel Upgrade Rebate

Receive a $1,000 rebate when you upgrade your existing electric panel to a new electric panel that is 200 amps or higher. Receive an additional $500 if you are enrolled in the utility's income-qualified bill assistance program at the time of application submission.

For most homes, an electric panel upgrade is required to accommodate additional load when making the switch to all-electric appliances/equipment for water heating, space heating, clothes drying, cooking or electric vehicle charging. All-electric appliances and equipment produce less carbon emissions than its fossil fuel counterparts, thereby improving overall indoor and outdoor air quality, as well as the health of our environment.

  • New electric panel must be upgraded to 200 amps or greater.
  • A dedicated Level 2 EV charger circuit AND a dedicated electric water heater circuit (240V, 30-amp double-pole circuit breakers), must be included as part of the electric panel upgrade in order to qualify for the rebate.
    • Newly installed breakers must be wired in accordance with applicable electric code.
