Apply for your $100-$500 induction cooktop/range rebate

Features and benefits

  • Induction heats up a pot of water nearly twice as fast as gas or standard electric.
  • More energy-efficient than traditional electric cooktops, which can save you money on your electric bill.
  • Since its surface is completely sealed, it's safer because there’s no exposed heating element or open flame. And, unless there’s cookware on it, the cooktop doesn’t heat up—even if it’s turned on.
  • Induction cooktops produce zero kitchen pollution. Natural gas stoves can release carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and other harmful pollutants into the air.
  • With its smooth surface, cleaning up is a snap.
  • Your kitchen stays cooler and less heat is wasted, since the cooktop’s heat is focused on the pan and nowhere else.
  • Precise, digital controls give you the exact heat you want, every time.

Requirements

  • Must install an induction cooktop/range measuring 30” or larger.
  • Both standalone cooktops and ranges with built-in induction cooktops are eligible. 

Rebates

  • Electric-to-electric replacements qualify for a $100 rebate.
  • Gas-to-electric replacements qualify for a $500 rebate. We require a "before" photo of the old gas cooktop/range in place and an "after" photo showing the new induction cooktop/range installed.
