MidAmerican Energy - EnergyAdvantage Commercial New Construction Rebate Program (detailed)

October 14, 2009


MidAmerican Energy's Commercial New Construction Program offers businesses within their distribution region incentives for energy efficient construction and design of new or preexisting buildings. Construction incentives are paid to the building owner based upon the kWh savings modeled and verified as installed by an independent modeler contracted by MidAmerican Energy. A minimum energy savings of 5 percent beyond that required by the state of Illinois code is required to qualify. Incentives range from $.05 to $.14 per kWh. Rebate incentives also are available for natural gas savings. Design Incentives are paid to design teams who use the services of an independent building energy performance modeler contracted by MidAmerican Energy. The independent modeler will analyze potential energy savings and produce a final energy verification report. Design incentives are determined based on the square footage and type of building. To participate in these programs, customers must print and complete the application form. Customers who participate in this program are ineligible for rebates from other MidAmerican EnergyAdvantage programs.
