Duke Energy Residential New Construction Program (RNC)

Learn how to save energy and money for your business through Duke Energy’s incentives program.  With these rebates and incentives, you can significantly reduce your upfront project costs and gain financial leverage to make upgrades that will save energy and money!  To qualify, the equipment must meet the 2012 NCECC HERO standards and the efficiency requirements outlined below.

The RNC program can provide up to $9,000 in rebates per home!  Choose from the Equipment Pathway or the Whole House Pathway

Equipment Incentives:

  • $250 for AC or heat pump with SEER of 14 or greater but less than 15
  • $300-$375 for AC or heat pump with SEER of 15
  • $350/unit for Energy star heat pump water heater with minimum energy factor of 2.0

Whole House Incentives:

  • $750 per home HERO prescriptive
  • A builder is eligible for rebates up to $9,000 depending on the amount of kilowatt-hours (kWh) saved.
