MGED Energy Star Appliance Rebates Details & Terms

What you'll need to know before you buy or apply

Why buy Energy Star?

MGED is pleased to offer rebates to customers purchasing selected energy efficient ENERGY STAR dehumidifiers or programmable Wi-Fi thermostats. ENERGY STAR appliances have been identified being significantly more energy efficient than the average comparable model. So whether they are included with our current rebated appliances, they always make sense.

To be eligible for the MGED Appliance Rebate incentive:

  • Only ENERGY STAR qualified and labeled appliances are eligible for rebate. Appliances that may qualify will have the ENERGY STAR logo on the yellow EnergyGuide label that is attached to the appliance. For more information check the complete list of MGED Rebates.
  • A copy of all sales receipts will be required by MGED in order to receive your incentive;
  • Offer limited to ONE of each type (dehumidifiers or programmable Wi-Fi thermostats) of ENERGY STAR appliance purchase per household per calendar year (except where noted);
  • Dehumidifier or programmable Wi-Fi thermostat must be installed at the account service location served by the listed account number;
  • Dehumidifier or programmable Wi-Fi thermostat must be purchased between January 1 and December 31 in calendar year of this program. Applications received after January 31 of next calendar year will not be honored for prior year so please send in your application in a timely fashion.
  • All appliance listings must include the brand, model and serial numbers of the new appliance. Customers may pre-qualify their purchases by calling Energy New England at 888-772-4242 to discuss the brand and model they will purchase and get help to confirm the Energy Star qualification. These qualifications change from year to year and need verification prior to purchase. Sales staff can be mistaken!

MGED reserves the right to inspect the installation on premises.
