Blue Ridge Mountain Electric Membership Corporation

Blue Ridge Mountain EMC and TVA, its power supplier, offer the Energy Right and In Home Energy Evaluation programs to qualified members. To qualify for water heater rebates provided by the Energy Right program, a home must be built to meet the program requirements. Homes that meet the program requirements will be all-electric and have an efficient heat pump installed. Additionally, homes which achieve a HERS score of .85 are eligible for a $400 rebate.

The In Home Energy Evaluation provides incentives for energy saving and weatherization home improvements. Households can receive up to a $500 rebate for pursuing eligible measures. Qualifying measures include window replacements, HVAC replacements and tune-ups, added insulation, duct and air sealing, and water heater insulation. Some measures can be self-installed, however, the maximum rebate for self-installed measures is $250.

Consult the Blue Ridge Mountain EMC website for more information on these programs.
