Commercial Kitchen Equipment Program
Operating inefficient food storage, holding and cooking equipment can lead to significantly higher energy bills. Installing energy-efficient commercial kitchen equipment can:
- Significantly reduce electric usage
- Decrease monthly energy costs
- Improve a kitchen's bottom line
MidAmerican Energy's EnergyAdvantage® program encourages installation of
high-efficiency commercial kitchen equipment for Illinois customers. Energy for which the
rebate is paid must be purchased from MidAmerican Energy. Rebates are available for these qualifying measures:
- Ice makers
- Solid and glass door refrigerators
- Solid and glass door freezers
- Hot food holding cabinets
- Natural gas fryers
- Natural gas conveyor and convection ovens
- Refrigerated vending machine controllers
- Demand controlled ventilation for kitchen range hoods
A complete list of qualifying equipment and additional information on energy-efficient equipment for commercial kitchens can be found at www.energystar.gov
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.
New in 2013 is that preapproval is NOT required
for nonresidential prescriptive projects exceeding $10,000.
Preapproval is still required in the Custom Systems program.
