Lighting Equipment Program
An Outstanding Return on a Light Investment
As a business owner, you look for investments with short payback periods and attractive rates of return. Energy-efficient lighting is just such an investment. As much as 40 percent of your electric bill may be just the cost of your business lighting requirements. Installing energy-efficient lighting can:
- Significantly reduce electric usage
- Decrease monthly energy costs
- Markedly improve lighting quality
- Provide a safer and more productive work environment
MidAmerican Energy's EnergyAdvantage® program encourages the installation of high-efficiency lighting equipment in our customers' industrial and commercial facilities in Iowa. Energy for which the rebate is paid must be purchased directly from MidAmerican Energy. Rebates are available for these qualifying measures:
- Fluorescent T-8 and T-5 systems (must be 800 series), including high-bay fixtures and daylight harvesting ballasts
- Reduced-wattage T-8 systems
- Pulse-start metal halide fixtures and reduced-wattage lamps
- Compact fluorescent lamps and fixtures
- 330- and 360-watt metal halide lamps for relamping projects
- Occupancy sensors and timers
- LED exit signs, traffic lighting, strip lighting and refrigerated case lighting
- LED lamps and fixtures
Rebates are not to exceed 70 percent of the installed cost (reasonable labor and material).
MidAmerican Energy also provides financial incentives to help customers implement energy-efficient equipment
and systems that are not included in our prequalified equipment lists or addressed in other EnergyAdvantage programs. Cash
incentives will be customized and are based on the qualifying equipment’s higher incremental cost, peak demand reduction,
annual energy use reduction and annual energy cost savings. An application for the Custom Systems program must be received
and preapproved by MidAmerican Energy prior to the customer’s purchase and installation of equipment or systems to be
eligible for a rebate. MidAmerican Energy can provide technical assistance to expedite the rebate application process.
View our Custom Systems guidelines
for additional information.
Although noted in the nonresidential prescriptive program brochures’ Terms and Conditions
(“Rebates exceeding $10,000 require preapproval by MidAmerican Energy Company.”),
preapproval is NOT required
for nonresidential prescriptive projects exceeding
$10,000. Preapproval is still required in the Custom Systems program.
