to Summary by DSIRE
Xcel Energy offers its Wisconsin residential customers rebates for high efficiency appliances and systems. Currently, rebates are available for high efficiency electric water heaters, electric thermal storage, programmable thermostats, and high efficiency gas furnaces and boilers. The water heater rebate is only available to those who do not live in an area with Xcel gas, and the customer must be on one of the Xcel Energy time-of-use programs.
In addition to these rebates, Xcel Energy offers special rates for off-peak hours through the Optional Off Peak Rate program. Customers that enroll are eligible for a lower electric rate during off peak hours, between 9pm and 7am. Xcel Energy also offers the Saver's Switch program for residential customers, which pays customers a bill credit for agreeing to have their air conditioner cycled on and off during peak hours in the summer months.
