The cost difference is on us
There are a lot of fun ways to spend $550! You could plan a family vacation, decorate your home or treat your kids to the newest electronic gadget.
If you’re a member who owns a manufactured home or is in the market for this type of housing, let us help make your residence more energy-efficient and reduce your heating costs by an average of $550 per year.
We’re powering savings by offering incentives to upgrade electric furnaces to high-efficiency heat pumps in new or existing manufactured homes.
About 32 percent of West Florida Electric Cooperative's members are manufactured homeowners. Here in Florida, more than 10 percent of homeowners buy manufactured homes. These residences serve a real need for affordable housing. There is also a need for these homes to be more energy-efficient. Since they typically come with an electric furnace, we’re launching a program to help manufactured home buyers, as well as existing owners, upgrade to a high-efficiency heat pump. This will lower electric use during cold months and save participants an average of $550 per year on heating costs!
For all of us who are already watching every penny, $550 per year over many years really adds up. As a not-for-profit electric cooperative, we want what’s best for our members. That includes helping them reduce their power bills, when possible.
Working with manufactured home dealers in our area, West Florida Electric will cover the DIFFERENCE to upgrade from an electric furnace to a high-efficiency heat pump in any new manufactured home purchased by our members, at no cost to the buyer. The upgrade cost is paid directly to the manufactured home dealer at the point of sale. The upgrade helps lower the purchaser’s electric bills for years to come, makes the home more comfortable, efficient and valuable without adding anything to the mortgage. 87177001
We’re also helping homeowners in our service area who already own their manufactured homes, too. These members can get a rebate of up to $400 per ton when they replace an electric furnace with a high-efficiency heat pump. Plus, they’ll enjoy the comfort and savings of an energy-efficient heat pump for years to come.
"We're a member driven cooperative. Any time West Florida Electric has an opportunity to implement a program that will benefit our members, we are going to be all in. This program will allow our members to increase the comfort and efficiency of their homes without sacrificing their hard-earned money. Their payback for installing a heat pump will be immediate," said Derek Chadwell, Supervisor or Marketing & Energy Services.
This program is one more way we’re adding value. You can find more information about it on our website at www.westflorida.coop or by calling today.
