In addition to equipment rebates, New Ulm Public Utilities offers an opportunity for customers to increase energy efficiency through the ReLeaf Tree Reimbursement Program. NUPU will reimburse customers for 2/3 of the cost of eligible trees up to a maximum of $75 per tree, provided the trees are planted in an area that will provide adequate shade to the building.
Rebates vary according to applicable sector, and some rebates are only offered seasonally. More information, including rebate applications and information on the ReLeaf program, can be found at the web site listed above.
