Cuivre River Electric Take Control & Save Rebate Program
Cuivre River’s Take Control & Save rebate program, funded primarily by power supplier Associated Electric Cooperative, Inc. (AECI) of Springfield, continues to make high-efficiency products with demand-reducing capabilities more affordable for many Cuivre River members.
More than 2,700 members have taken part in the rebate program since it began in 2008. Demand savings from Ground Source and Dual Fuel Heat Pump installations range from 7-10 megawatts compared to standard efficiency electric heating options. More than 3,606 tons of high efficiency heating and cooling have been installed.
The overall goal of the Take Control & Save program is improved operating efficiency across the AECI power supply network 24 hours a day. With this goal in mind, rebate parameters are adjusted periodically.
Current rebates for residential and commercial facilities include:
$50 Water Heater Rebate for 90%+ efficient standard electric tank-style water heaters (Tankless or Heat Pump/Hybrid units are not eligible).
$750 per Ton Ground Source Heat Pump Rebate for qualifying new installations, 19.1 EER, other conditions also apply. Replacement GSHPs may qualify for $150 per Ton.
50% Insulation Rebate (up to $500 maximum) for insulation when installed in conjunction with a GSHP. A rebate is available for basement, crawl space or slab floor insulation that meets current Energy Star® R-Value recommendations.
$150 per Ton Dual Fuel Heat Pump Rebate for qualifying Air Source Heat Pump systems, 16.5 SEER minimum, installed with a new or existing supplemental gas or propane heating system, other conditions apply.
$150 per Ton Mini-Split Air Source Heat Pump Rebate for qualified systems that meet the same requirements as the current Dual Fuel Heat Pump program. No electric resistant heat is permitted and units must have a minimum 16.5 SEER rating.
Mini-split systems are often installed to heat and cool room additions and previously unconditioned areas.
Business Lighting Rebate
In addition to rebates for both residential and commercial use, a lighting rebate is available for commercial establishments and schools undertaking energy-efficient lighting installations and upgrades. Pre- and post-lighting audits are required. Rebates are based on the amount of energy to be saved per fixture (10-bulb minimum). The amount is capped at $30,000 per year, and cannot exceed 40% of the total capital cost of the lighting equipment.
