When shopping for new appliances, most of us know to look for energy-efficient models that will help save money on our utility bills. But did you know you might be eligible for a rebate, too? Effective December 9, 2011, Missouri Gas Energy has increased the rebates it offers for customers who purchase and install energy-efficient natural gas appliances.

MGE customers are eligible for the following rebates through MGE’s Energy Sense® program:

  • $ 50 for a tank water heater with an Energy Factor (EF) rating greater than or equal to .62 EF, but less than .67 EF.
  • $125 for tank water heater greater than or equal to .67 EF but less than .79 EF.
  • $200 for .80 EF or greater condensing tank water heater or .82 EF or greater tankless water heater.

  • $200 for a natural gas boiler system that meets current Energy Star® criteria.
  • $25 for a programmable thermostat if purchased in conjunction with a space heating system.

The energy factor (EF) and the annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) are measures of an appliance’s energy efficiency. Be sure to ask your plumber or HVAC professional for this information when choosing your appliance.  All qualifying units are ENERGY STAR® rated.
