Alpena Power Company offers rebates, assistance and other incentives through the Efficiency United program, which is a partnership between 11 Michigan utilities. The program is intended to provide assistance and incentives to customers who install or employ energy efficient equipment or measures which save money and energy at home and at work. The Energy Star Appliance Rebate Program is one part of this energy efficiency consortium. Alpena Power Company offers rebates on CFL bulbs, natural gas water heaters, pipe wrap, faucet aerators, shower heads, smart power strips, and energy star clothes washers.
