“The speed at which they processed the rebate was really appreciated… I would definitely recommend the process.”

Fisherman’s Picnic General Store installed an air source heat pump, which greatly increased comfort for both staff and customers. They received a rebate of $1,500 and are saving $650 annually. The store doesn’t need to use electric baseboard heat anymore, which makes a considerable positive impact on winter heat bills, and the environment.
