Energy Star Rebates

When looking for new products for your home, look for those that are a minimum of ENERGY STAR rated. ENERGY Star was created to help consumers easily identify products, homes and buildings that save energy and money, and help protect the environment.

Rebates will not exceed the purchase price.

St. Charles Utility Customers may qualify for our Single Family Home Energy Efficiency Rebates. To be eligible, customers must meet the following conditions:

  1. A St. Charles Utility customer must purchase the qualified energy-star appliance (owner occupied residence only).
  2. The appliance must be installed in a St. Charles residence prior to applying for the rebate.
  3. The appliance must be new and purchased at retail price.
  4. Submission of the copy of the sales invoice which includes the following information:
    Store name; date of purchase; make/model; price and yellow tag showing energy star emblem.
  5. There are not forms to fill out; we just need to make copies of the above.

The City of St. Charles reserves the right to verify eligibility and installation of the appliance. Rebates are processed on a first come first serve basis until funds are depleted with a maximum benefit of $500.00 per year. Rebates will be processed for purchases made within six months of submission.
