Swimming is fun.

But swimming in a bunch of extra cash? That’s even better. As a Duke Energy customer, you can get paid to improve your pool. Save up to $640* in the first year when you upgrade to a quieter, more efficient pool pump.

Install an ENERGY STAR® certified variable-speed pool pump:
• Get a $300 rebate
• Pays for itself in less than two years
Saves you up to $340 each year in energy costs**
• Makes your pool cleaner, with less maintenance

* $300 rebate + $340 energy savings ** Energystar.gov Savings Calculator
Energy and cost savings are based on U.S. Department of Energy and ENERGY STAR calculator estimates.
Actual savings may differ from those estimated due to variations in individual energy use habits, size of pool and pool pump model.
