New in 2011! Rebates are now available for .62 and .64 EF water heaters. As of January 1st, 2011, Xcel Energy will be accepting rebate for these two new tiers. Only units installed after January 1st 2011 will qualify for the new rebate.

Xcel Energy offers four tiers of rebates, including tankless water heaters. (Learn more)
