  2. On the day of your appointment, your technician will call you before your scheduled time window with an estimated arrival time. Upon arrival, your energy technician will confirm your appliance qualifies for the $25 incentive and remove it from your home.
  3. In addition to removing your appliance, your energy technician will provide you with an Energy Efficiency Kit at no additional cost to you.

You will receive $10 for your window air conditioner and $5 for your dehumidifier.
