The MidAmerican Energy Residential Equipment Rebate Program offers rebates to its residential home-owning customers for the who purchase and installation of qualifying heating, cooling, and water heating equipment fueled by gas and/or electricity supplied directly by MidAmerican. Rebates range from $50-$2,000 for natural gas furnaces, natural gas boilers, air conditioners, natural gas water heaters, and air-source or geothermal heat pumps. Rebate amounts vary by efficiency, size and type of equipment. All equipment must meet certain energy efficiency standards listed on the program website. A printable version of the rebate application can also be found on the program website.
MidAmerican Energy's HomeCheck Program offers a free home energy audit and insulation up-grade rebate to its residential South Dakota customers who live in (and own) a home or mobile home built prior to Dec. 31, 1989, and whose primary heating source is supplied directly by MidAmerican. A trained energy specialist will perform a free energy assessment and, where appropriate, install selected energy-saving improvements such as: A water heater insulation blanket, six feet of water pipe insulation, energy-efficient light bulbs, etc. If the results of the energy assessment show that the insulation in the home is below the recommended levels, a second appointment with an approved contractor can be arranged to make the additional insulation installment. MidAmerican will pay up to 70 percent (maximum of $750) of the installed cost of the recommended insulation. Customers can call 800-894-9599 to request a HomeCheck.
