High-performance heat pumps are highly efficient heating and cooling systems that save energy and may reduce heating and cooling costs. Units must meet the minimum HSPF (Heating Seasonal Performance Factor) requirements in order to qualify for incentives from Efficiency Maine.
Heat Pump Incentives for New Construction or Renovation
Heat pump incentives are available for businesses that are looking for supplemental heating and cooling needs. These heat pump mini-split systems should not replace existing primary heating and cooling systems but can be installed to help target zones in need of more climate control.
Heat Pump Retrofits for Small Business
If you are a “Small General Service” (SGS), “Small Service” (SS), or “Medium General Service” (MGS) electric customer with an average monthly electrical demand of 50kW or less and looking to replace your primary heating system, then you’re eligible for enhanced heat pump incentives on higher efficiency systems (click here for a list of utility rate classifications). Businesses can receive $1,600 per single-zone system (HSPF 12.5), with a maximum of three systems or $4,800. If you’re interested in taking advantage of this offer, contact an Efficiency Maine Qualified Partner using our Qualified Partner Locator.
