Empire District Electric Company offers rebates to certain commercial and industrial customers for the installation of energy efficiency equipment. Prescriptive rebates for lighting, air conditioners, and motors are available for customers using CB and SH tariffs (commercial facilities with a demand of less than 40 kW). Custom rebates are available for customers on CB, SH, GP, PFM, and TEB rate schedules. If a small commercial customer applies for a customer rebate, the application will be evaluated to see if it can be accommodated under the prescriptive rebate formulas. Custom rebates will only be approved if there is a demonstrated cost-effective energy and/or demand reduction potential.
Prescriptive rebate levels vary dramatically according to measure, size, and efficiency. Measures that are not eligible for prescriptive rebates may be eligible as custom measures. Custom rebates are calculated as the lesser of three values: equivalent payback of 2 years; 50% of the incremental cost of the equipment; or 50% of the avoided life cycle demand and energy costs. All custom rebates must be pre-approved by the utility and are also subject to post-installation verification. Custom equipment must generally be UL-listed, or have an equivalent independent certification as determined by the utility.
Rebates will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Interested parties should contact the utility for additional information and application details.
