City of Tallahassee Utilities (CTU) offers residential customers rebates for the purchase of ENERGY STAR appliances and heating and cooling equipment. Qualifying appliances include refrigerators, freezers and clothes washers. Rebates also exist for electric HVAC systems including: central air conditioners, heat pumps and water heaters. CTU provides separate rebates for customers who upgrade their existing equipment to more efficient natural gas models. Incentivized items include furnaces, ovens, water heaters, and outdoor lighting. Bonus rebates can be achieved for natural gas equipment by purchasing and installing multiple eligible items at one time.
