Note: The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission approved MidAmerican Energy Company’s request to allow MidAmerican Energy to continue offering rebates for high efficiency natural gas furnaces and ground-source heat pumps in its 2015 Residential Equipment program. The commission set the 2015 rebate for residential natural gas furnaces with an AFUE of 95% and above at $300. The 2015 rebates for ground-source heat pumps remain the same as 2014. Applications for 2015 residential natural gas furnaces and ground-source heat pumps may be submitted for equipment purchased and installed between Jan. 1 – Dec. 31, 2015. Rebates related to residential natural gas furnaces and ground-source heat pumps will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Rebates may not be available if 2015 program funding is depleted prior to the end of the year.

MidAmerican Energy also received approval to use 2015 funds to pay outstanding 2014 furnace rebate applications received after Dec. 31, 2014, but before March 31, 2015.

The commission adjusted nonresidential natural gas furnace rebates for 2015 as follows:

Equipment Type Minimum Heating Efficiency Rebate
<250 MBtuh 92-93.9 AFUE $5 X CAP in MBtu
<250 MBtuh 94-95.9 AFUE $7.50 X CAP in MBtu
<250 MBtuh ≥96.0 AFUE $10 X CAP in MBtu
These new nonresidential natural gas furnace rebates will be effective for equipment purchased and installed on or after April 8, 2015. Rebates for nonresidential natural gas furnaces will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Rebates may not be available if 2015 program funding is depleted prior to the end of the year.

MidAmerican Energy will monitor program funding levels and communicate to its customers and trade allies if program funding is not expected to be available throughout the end of the year. This will be communicated via multiple channels such as email, social media and website notices.
