Multifamily Housing

For Business Customers in Iowa

Investing in energy efficiency can add value to your properties and increase your lease occupancy rate. Lower energy bills are attractive to existing and potential tenants.

Energy Assessment

Schedule your free on-site energy assessment and an energy expert will identify ways to reduce your energy use. You’ll receive a report with recommendations for energy-saving opportunities and estimates of energy-saving potential.

The program uses a comprehensive assessment approach with all living units and common areas. Assessments of individual living units will not be performed.

Energy assessments must be scheduled and completed by December 20, 2018.


  • Direct-install measures – Gain immediate cost savings. Our energy expert may install energy efficiency measures at no cost, as appropriate.
  • Equipment and building shell rebates – Rebates for equipment and building shell upgrades also apply; refer to the equipment, lighting and building shell programs for qualifying equipment and measures.
  • Insulation rebates – An on-site building assessment is required. Visit our energy assessment insulation details page for more information.


  • You must be a customer with facilities located in MidAmerican Energy Company’s Iowa service territory.
  • MidAmerican Energy Company must provide the primary electricity and/or natural gas to the building for which the rebate is being paid.
  • Transportation gas customers with daily metering are ineligible for natural gas incentives. However, customers with monthly metering under the Monthly Metered Transportation Service natural gas tariff are eligible for energy efficiency incentives.
  • Facilities must be built before Jan. 1, 2008.
  • The building must have four or more living units, such as:
    • An apartment complex
    • Condominiums
  • An on-site building assessment is required prior to beginning an insulation project in order to qualify for an insulation rebate.

Note: For equipment placed in individual living units, view the For Your Home booklet.
