Listing a product does not constitute an endorsement, nor does it imply that unlisted products are defective in any way.
    • MidAmerican Energy Company, its program implementation contractors and their subcontractors do not guarantee that installation and operation of energy-efficient equipment will result in reduced usage or in cost savings. The manner in which a customer uses and maintains energy-efficient equipment affects potential cost savings.
    • MidAmerican Energy Company, its program implementation contractors and their subcontractors make no warranties, expressed or implied, with respect to any equipment purchased or installed, including, but not limited to, any warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.
    • In no event shall MidAmerican Energy Company, its program implementation contractors or their subcontractors be held liable for any incidental or consequential damages or injuries resulting from defective equipment or installation arising out of a customer’s participation in any programs.
    • MidAmerican Energy Company may wish to publicize the customer's participation in the program, the results, the amount of incentives paid to the customer and any other information that reasonably relates to the customer's participation. In such instances, MidAmerican Energy Company will secure a release from the customer authorizing to make such information public.
    • The programs are effective January 1, 2023, through December 31, 2023, unless otherwise noted, and are subject to periodic review by MidAmerican Energy Company, and MidAmerican Energy Company reserves the right to modify or end these programs at any time without any notification.

    • Any energy savings measures installed prior to the issuance of MidAmerican Energy Company’s written authorization or preapproval will be deemed as an unauthorized installation and MidAmerican Energy Company will have no obligation to pay incentives for those energy savings measures.
    • Regardless of preapproval from MidAmerican Energy Company, projects may be denied, or incentives reduced upon receipt of final project cost and scope of work documentation.
    • MidAmerican Energy Company reserves the right to lower the incentive amount if the quantity and/or cost of energy savings measures actually installed by the customer differ from the preapproved project.

Customers will receive the lesser of the calculated custom rebate or 50% of the eligible project cost, and the rebate may not reduce the simple payback for the project to less than two years.
