Water heating is the second largest energy expense in your home, accounting for about 18% of your utility bill*.

It’s easy to save on your water-related energy usage with the Residential Water Energy Savings Program from Dominion Energy Virginia.

Heat Pump Water Heaters

The Water Energy Savings program offers a rebate up to $400 off the purchase of a new  connected heat pump water heater that meets ENERGY STAR performance requirements.

Heat pump water heaters move heat from one place to another using electricity, instead of generating heat directly. Due to this design, heat pump water heaters can be two to three times more energy efficient than conventional electric resistance water heaters*.

In addition to rebates, incentives are coming soon for participating in the Water Energy Savings Demand Response Program. Earn up to $40 for your first year of participating, and $10 per year thereafter.

In addition to rebates, incentives are coming soon for participating in the Water Energy Savings Demand Response Program. Earn up to $40 for your first year of participating, and $10 per year thereafter.
