Summary 
PNM offers several types of incentives for residential customers to improve the energy efficiency of eligible homes. Rebates are available for air conditioners, heat pumps, evaporative coolers, and pool pumps.

PNM also offers the PNM Home Energy Checkup, which gives residential customers a snapshot of their home's electricity use and identifies opportunities to reduce electricity waste. There are three Home Energy Checkup packages to choose from, ranging from $15 to $45. Each package includes 2 LED nightlights, up to 2 efficient-flow showerheads, 2 bathroom faucet aerators, 1 kitchen faucet aerator, 2 smart power strips, and a programmable thermostat if you have a refrigerated air conditioning unit with a manual thermostat. In addition to this, Package A ($15) includes up to 20 CFLs to replace incandescent bulbs, Package B ($30) includes up to 20 LEDs to replace incandescent bulbs, and Package C ($45) includes everything in Package B plus a diagnostic performance test (iConnect) for an air conditioning system. Package C is only available from April 1 to October 31. The fee for any Home Energy Checkup package is waived for customers who are at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. 

Based on the results of the Home Energy Checkup, a residence may qualify for additional appliance and cooling rebates. Rebates are available for refrigerators, freezers, clothes washers and dryers, dishwashers, air purifiers, air conditioning units, and attic/ceiling insulation.
