NIPSCO - New Facility Efficiency Rebate Program

April 07, 2014


Northern Indiana Public Service Corporation (NIPSCO) offers incentives to commercial, industrial, nonprofit, government, and institutional customers for new, high-efficiency equipment or systems, including new construction, major renovations, or additions to existing facilities. Customers receive rebates based on the estimated electricity to be saved in the first year that the new equipment or systems are in place. Systems or equipment installed before receiving project approval are not eligible for rebates. The payback period for the installed equipment must be more than one year (without the incentive). More information regarding the application process and eligibility is available on the program web site.
