DearCustomer-

 

The water heater doesn't qualify for a rebate. However you are probably entitled to an energy credit for a percentage of the cost of the water heater. You will include the credit form with your tax return when you file next year. I had provided a link to the 2008 Form 5695 which is used to apply for the credit. The 2009 forms have not yet been published.
