Work with a participating contractor to determine if a heat pump is right for you.
OPTIONAL STEP 3
Optionally, your contractor submits a pre-approval project application to Abode to verify equipment rebate eligibility. This step is highly recommended for whole-home heat pump projects.
Your new heating and cooling system is installed.
Your contractor submits a post-install form to Abode with documentation of the completed install. We review the submission for install quality and rebate eligibility.
The rebate is processed and customers enjoy clean, efficient cooling and heating.

In order to be eligible for a rebate through MGED, the project must adhere to Abode’s review process.
There are four main steps to be aware of:
STEP 1: HOME ENERGY ASSESSMENT
STEP 2: PRE-APPROVAL FORM (OPTIONAL)
Optionally, the Pre-Approval form can be completed by the contractor prior to installation. Once you have decided on a contractor and heat pump proposal to move forward with, if you would like to confirm eligibility for rebates prior to install, your installer can submit the Optional Pre-Approval Form. This form includes equipment information for the proposed heat pump system(s). Abode will verify whether the equipment meets the efficiency requirements to qualify for the MLP's rebate.
If you have multiple proposals and have not decided yet on a single proposal, rather than submitting multiple pre-approvals, we ask that you instead submit a "Quote Review" to Abode; see above for consultation offerings to submit quotes.
STEP 3: INSTALL QA FORM
STEP 4: REBATE APPLICATION
If applying for the replacement bonus, documentation is required verifying the removal of previous central AC or heat pump unit (either on the invoice or separate disposal/haul-away documents).

RULES & REQUIREMENTS
- Energy audit required within the last 2 years.
- If completing a project over multiple years, there is still a maximum of $2,000 per household. Cannot exceed $2,000 total.
