TCLP Rebate Program

Rebates up to $2,000 on a new Heat Pump System 

What is a Heat Pump?
A heat pump is a device used for heating and cooling purposes by transferring heat from one location to another. It operates on the principle of moving heat rather than generating it directly.
In heating mode, a heat pump extracts heat from the outside air, ground, or water source (depending on the type of heat pump) and transfers it indoors to warm the building. In cooling mode, it works in reverse, removing heat from indoors and transferring it outside.

Right now, TCLP Customers can get up to a $2,000 Rebate on new Heat Pumps.  Not only will you have money on your utility bills, but you will also get a $2,000 rebate directly from Traverse City Light and Power.

If property is sold, the loan can stay with the property if agreed upon by buyer.

Eligible Improvements
Qualifying energy-saving home improvements. A whole-home assessment with diagnostic testing is required for each financed project.

Loan Rates
3% interest rate for loan terms up to 120 months.

Key Underwriting Criteria

If an applicant has no more than one delinquency in the past 12 months, TCL&P may pre-approve the applicant if there is no more than one delinquency in the last 24 months or the applicant has a credit score of 640 or higher. Applicants should not have any delinquent taxes, bankruptcies within the last three years (from discharge), foreclosures, repossessions greater than $1,000, or unsatisfied money judgments.
