La Plata Electric Association

La Plata Electric Association (LPEA) offers a variety of rebates for members to improve the efficiency of homes and facilities. Rebates are available for a variety of Energy Star appliances, the recycling of a refrigerator or freezer, electric water heaters, permanent electric heat, energy efficient motors, heat pumps, and commercial lighting measures.

The Energy Star Appliance and Refrigerator Recycling Program offers rebates for clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators, and refrigerator/freezer recycling. Customers have 180 days from date of purchase to apply for the rebate. Following purchase, customers must submit an original proof-of-purchase along with the completed rebate form to the LPEA office in either Durango or Pagosa Springs. The rebates will be credited to LPEA customers’ electric bills within the following billing cycle.

The Energy Efficiency Credits program offers rebates for water heaters, electric thermal storage heaters, electric motors, air-source heat pumps, geothermal heat pumps, and lighting upgrades for commercial customers. Equipment must meet certain efficiency standards listed on the program web site. For these incentives, customers are required to provide LPEA an itemized receipt and/or work order as evidence of purchase before receiving the check/bill credit. Contact LPEA for more information on this program.
