Lightingarrows

As a business owner, you look for investments with an attractive rate of return. Energy-efficient lighting is just such an investment. As much as 40 percent of your electric bill may be just keeping the lights on.

Rebates cannot exceed 70 percent of the installed cost (materials and reasonable labor). You will receive the lesser of the rebate amount or 70 percent of the installed cost. View our lighting tables.

Qualifications
  • You must be a commercial or industrial business customer with facilities located in MidAmerican Energy Company’s Iowa service territory.
  • MidAmerican Energy Company must provide the primary electricity to the equipment at the facility for which the rebate is being paid.
