Trade Ally Centralarrows

MidAmerican Energy values the relationships we have with our trade allies. Our goal is to provide resources to help you market and deliver energy-efficient products and services to your customers. Working together, we can educate our mutual customers about the value and importance of energy efficiency. Greater customer awareness helps you sell energy-efficient equipment and increases participation in energy efficiency programs.

MidAmerican Energy is pleased to offer EnergyAdvantage® residential and nonresidential energy efficiency programs for South Dakota customers within our service territory. Current energy efficiency program brochures and an overview brochure, which provides abbreviated descriptions of each program, may be printed or viewed online. Printed copies of the overview brochure, as well as certain program-specific educational materials, may be ordered via an order request form or by calling our representatives at 877-290-4517.

Note: MidAmerican Energy Company has offered its Residential Equipment Program 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, 2014 program funding for the Residential Equipment program natural gas measures (natural gas furnaces and programmable thermostats) was depleted in October. MidAmerican Energy has worked with the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission to secure $550,142 in additional funding for the 2014 Residential Equipment program. As a result, MidAmerican Energy will proceed to process and pay all rebate applications that were received by Oct. 31, 2014. Applications received after that will be processed and paid on a first come, first served basis while 2014 funding remains available. Residential Equipment program electric measures and energy audits are not affected. Nonresidential energy efficiency programs (electric and natural gas) are not affected.

Important points:
  • MidAmerican Energy intends to continue the Residential Equipment program Jan. 1, 2015; more details on the 2015 rebate structure will be available in December 2014.
  • Applications received after Oct. 31, 2014, will be processed and paid on a first come, first served basis until the recently approved additional 2014 funding is depleted.
  • Any rebates for equipment purchased and installed in 2014 will not be eligible for 2015 program funding.
  • Any 2014 natural gas furnace or programmable thermostat applications received after program funds are depleted, will not be eligible for a rebate.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the possible over participation in the Residential Equipment program. Please be mindful of the possibility of rebate funding being depleted as you engage in marketing and sales activities with our shared customers. If you have questions about the program, please call 877-290-4517.

Note: The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission has given MidAmerican Energy Company approval to add natural gas furnace and ground-source heat pump rebates to its 2014 Residential Equipment program. The rebates are available for natural gas furnaces and ground-source heat pumps purchased between Jan. 1, 2014, and Dec. 31, 2014. View the residential equipment program brochure for specifics. Throughout 2014, watch for upcoming information, new resources and enhancements that will be available to you.
