The Department of Energy Resources (DOER) provides the owners of qualifying alternative energy systems, including whole-home air source heat pumps, with Alternative Energy Certificates (AECs), which can be sold to receive a financial incentive. The DOER encourages system owners to work with Aggregators who can submit your application and sell your AECs on your behalf. Please reach out to an aggregator for more information and the eligibility requirements. Here is a link to a list of aggregators located on the program webpage.
