2016 Accelera® Incentives
For units purchased during the 2016 calendar year to replace an existing water heater in your primary residence, a $300 federal tax credit is available. All Accelera® Heat Pump Water Heaters qualify for this tax credit. There are also a number of local government and utility rebates available across the country that the Accelera® qualifies for. A good place to look for rebates by region is The US Department of Energy's Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency website, DSIRE.
