There is a maximum incentive of $1,000 per customer for this program.

The Village of Akron has been offering energy efficiency programs to their customers since the mid 1990's. Mayor Ray M. Perkins, stated "We assist our customers by offering energy efficient products like ENERGY STAR® labeled appliances, which in turn has a positive effect on the environment, reduces our customer's electric costs, and our peak electric load."

ENERGY STAR® labeled products use state of the art technology and require less money and less energy to operate, while still offering superior performance. By choosing ENERGY STAR® labeled appliances, electric ratepayers in Akron can make a difference in protecting the environment and reducing their electric costs. Incentives are available for air conditioners, ceiling fans, clothes washers, dehumidifiers, dishwashers, electric hot water heaters, programmable thermostats, and refrigerators.
