Important Things to Note

  • In order to be eligible for this rebate, the home must be located in Thurston County and be primarily heated by Propane, Oil, or Wood, and/or be a Rental.  Other restrictions apply. See sections above to learn more information about each type of rebate.
  • Please note that Thurston Energy must receive a Project Information Form for each project prior to paying the associated rebate to customer.  This is critical so that Thurston Energy has all of the information required by its funders WSU Energy Program to report to the State Legislature in order to track the outcomes of contractual services.
  • Ductless heat pump systems being installed with multiple compressors do not qualify for Thurston Energy rebates and incentives.
  • Rebate amount is calculated based on the price after any discounts or instant rebates are applied, after sales tax is applied but before any customer-claimed utility rebates.  Under no circumstances will total combined rebate amounts exceed the total amount paid by the customer for a project.
  • Rental homes heated with natural gas do qualify for weatherization rebate, but do not qualify for ductless heat pump rebate.
  • In order to comply with legislative information requests, customers will be asked to sign release forms to allow collection and reporting of actual energy usage before and after improvements are made.
  • Customers are advised to consult with their pre-approved contractor and Thurston Energy representative for further details.
