SOUTH DAKOTA NONRESIDENTIAL ELECTRIC ENERGY EFFICIENCY PROGRAM SUSPENSION
MidAmerican Energy Company has offered its Nonresidential Custom Systems, Nonresidential Equipment
(Variable-Speed Drives, Lighting Equipment, and Heating and Cooling Equipment) and BusinessCheck® programs to South Dakota
customers since 2009. Program participation is increasing as more customers become interested in saving energy and money
through energy efficiency.
Due to increased participation, 2013 program funding for the electric measures, projects, process improvements and energy
audits associated with the above-referenced programs is nearly depleted. As a result, MidAmerican Energy has suspended the
electric portions of the 2013 Nonresidential Custom Systems, Nonresidential Equipment and BusinessCheck programs.
Nonresidential natural gas measures, projects, process improvements and energy audits are not being suspended.
Residential energy efficiency programs (electric and natural gas) are not affected.
Please note these important points:
- MidAmerican Energy intends to resume the affected programs Jan. 1, 2014.
- If you currently are working on projects, you have until Aug. 15, 2013, to complete the installation and submit rebate applications. We will continue to process applications in the order received and as funding allows. Rebate applications received on or before Aug. 15, 2013, that cannot be paid in 2013 will be processed in early 2014.
- Projects completed and invoiced during the programs’ suspension from Aug. 16, 2013, through Dec. 31, 2013, will not be eligible for a rebate.
If you have questions about the programs or the status of a rebate application, call 800-318-8915 for the Nonresidential
Custom Systems program, 800-894-9599 for the Nonresidential Equipment program or 877-401-4059 for the BusinessCheck program.

ground-source heat pump rebates for 2013 only. The rebates are available for equipment purchased between Jan. 1, 2013 and
