If you have an old refrigerator, dishwasher, clothes washer, room air conditioner, ceiling fan or lighting fixture, chances are it’s using more energy than necessary. With this program, Provo City Power is offering rebates to upgrade your old appliances with new ones that use energy-efficient technology. To participate, you need to be a Provo Power customer in good standing, complete the application form, and submit documentation (sales receipts, etc.) within 90 days of purchase. Got an old appliance? Switch it!
***The energy efficiency program offered by Provo Power will be ending this year. Purchases made after March 30th, 2020 will not qualify for the rebate, and all rebate requests must be submitted on or before June 30th, 2020. Rebate requests will not be accepted after this time.***
With the support of the Provo City Energy Board and the Provo Municipal Council, it has been decided that the SwitchItprovo rebate programs will be discontinued as of March 30th, 2020. All purchases must be documented as purchased on or before March 30th, 2020, to allow for the 90-day submission window. Rebate requests for these purchases must be submitted on or before June 30th, 2020 to be considered. This decision is based on several factors and, in addition to planning and budgeting for other programs that will prove to be more beneficial, both for our customers and for the utility. If you have questions regarding this decision or the programs we have offered please contact us by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org

Q: Is there a limit to the number of rebates I can get with this program?
A: Each household is limited to one rebate per appliance category unless otherwise listed. A household may receive a maximum of two rebates each for lighting fixtures and/or ceiling fans. Please be aware that the rebates will be offered only as long as program funds are available. When those funds are depleted, the program will end.
Q: Does it matter where I buy the appliance? Must I buy it from someone on your list of local appliance dealers?
A: It's not necessary to purchase an appliance/fixture from a company on the list in order to get a rebate. However, merchants on the list have been educated about the Provo Power rebate program, and can help you make an informed purchase choice. In addition, Provo Power would like to encourage our customers to support area businesses whenever possible.
Q: I don't currently have a dishwasher, but would like to purchase one. Can I buy a new energy-efficient dishwasher and apply for the rebate?
