Start saving on your summer energy bills with a new energy-efficient pool pump

Most pool owners know that their swimming pool consumes a lot of energy; they see it on their summer energy bills. You can start saving energy by replacing your single-speed pool pump with a two-speed or variable-speed unit.



Many pools are equipped with single speed pumps that use more energy than you need to keep the water clean. Efficiency Vermont recommends replacing your single-speed pool pump with a two-speed or variable-speed unit.

Take advantage of our $200 rebate for the purchase and installation of a qualifying energy-efficient two-speed or variable speed pool pump.

Two-speed and variable-speed pumps cost more to purchase, but you’ll recoup the extra cost in lower electric bills.


  • Variable speed and two-speed pool pumps use as little as 1/3 of the energy of single speed pumps.
  • An energy-efficient pool pump can save you up to $200 a season on your electric bill.
  • Premium variable speed and two-speed pumps operate more quietly than most single speed models, while providing superior filtration.

Pool Pump Rebate Program FAQs

Do I need to hire a pool pump installer to be eligible for the rebate?

No. You can install the pump yourself and still receive a rebate. We do recommend that you hire a professional installer who has attended an efficient pool pump installation training. Find an Efficient Pool Pump Installer.

Where can I purchase one of the pool pumps on the qualifying products list?

Pool pumps are sold where ever pool equipment is sold. Call your local pool retailer or one of the trained installers listed on the Find a Retailer tab and see if they have what you need in stock.
