Small Business Direct Install Lighting Program

The Small Business Direct Install Lighting Pilot program helps your business identify lighting upgrades that can reduce your energy use. At no charge, a skilled provider will evaluate your business to review your current lighting situation and provide a report outlining potential upgrades including costs, rebates and energy savings. You choose which projects you want to implement, and MidAmerican Energy will issue the rebate directly to lighting provider, which means reduced upfront costs to you.

Incentives

  • Rebates are the greater of the two:
    • One year of energy savings multiplied by $0.16/kWh
    • MidAmerican’s applicable standard lighting rebates
  • Rebate is paid directly to your lighting service provider reducing your out of pocket cost

Program Qualifications

  • Participants must be commercial electric customers with facilities located in MidAmerican Energy’s Iowa service territory
  • Your building structure(s) associated with one address and one account must be less than 50,000 square feet
  • The location must have annual electric usage of 500,000 kWh or less

Building optimization services

Enhance building operations and increase efficiency through low- or no-cost measures and practices. Express Building Tune-Up is designed for buildings under 100,000 sq. ft. by offering simple retrocommissioning strategies to save energy and improve occupant comfort. For larger buildings, Retrocommissioning may be more appropriate with a detailed engineering analysis of the building systems to determine the most cost effective methods for reducing energy consumption.

Incentives

MidAmerican Energy will fund 50 percent of the Express Building Tune-Up survey or Retrocommissioning study and additional incentives are earned based on energy savings ($0.05/kWh and $0.20/therm) from implemented projects. Incentives are capped at the lesser of:

  • 65 percent of total study and implementation cost
  • $0.20/square foot of building space
