PNM Distributor Discount Program

Instant, point-of-sale rebates on high-efficiency equipment


Here's How it Works

A participating equipment distributor sells an eligible piece of high-efficiency equipment to an eligible PNM commercial or industrial customer. The customer receives a "rebate" as a discount, instantly, at the time of purchase - and doesn't have to complete any paperwork. PNM then pays the rebate directly to the equipment distributor.

You probably know that energy-efficient equipment saves energy and money, offers improved technology and is better for the environment. While the up-front purchase price of efficient equipment is usually higher, your cost is more than recouped over its lifetime. Here's why replacing aging, inefficient equipment with high-efficiency alternatives is the smart choice:

  • Save instantly with the PNM Distributor Discount Program’s point-of-sale rebate
  • Enjoy immediate and often substantial energy bill savings
  • Avoid expensive, unplanned emergency repairs due to equipment failure during peak seasons
  • Since high-efficiency systems use the latest technology, enjoy better performance, less downtime, and reduced maintenance expenses.
