    2021 Illinois Business Programs
    • Participants must be nonresidential customers (commercial or industrial) with facilities located in MidAmerican Energy Company’s Illinois service territory.
    • MidAmerican Energy Company must deliver the primary electricity or natural gas to the equipment for which the rebate is being paid. Additionally, heating, ventilation and air conditioning rebates may require that the primary heating fuel is provided by MidAmerican Energy Company to the installation address.
    • Qualifying equipment must be new, installed on the premises and must not be purchased for resale.
    • Customers are responsible for ensuring that the equipment installed for these programs meets all applicable codes, standards and regulatory requirements.
    • Equipment must be purchased between Jan. 1, 2021, and Dec. 31, 2021, and installed and operating prior to submission of final rebate application. Rebate applications for equipment/material purchased must be submitted within six months of dealer invoice or by Dec. 31, 2021, whichever comes first. Applications can be submitted via email at
    • Prescriptive rebates will be based on the rebate schedule in effect on the date of dealer invoice for the equipment/material purchased.
    • Rebates are issued on a first-come, first-served basis.
    • For prescriptive rebates, the rebate payment cannot exceed 50% of the installed cost (reasonable labor and material/equipment - reasonableness to be determined by MidAmerican Energy Company). Installed cost includes contractor labor only and does not include internal labor.
    • All project installations with rebates exceeding $20,000 will require an on-site verification of installation by either MidAmerican Energy Company, its program implementation contractor(s) or their subcontractors prior to issuance of rebate.
    • Rebate checks will be issued to the building owner or account holder.
    • Allow up to 14 days for prescriptive rebate processing once application and supporting documents are received and accepted (excluding on-site verification time, if needed).
    • Customers may not receive custom rebates in lieu of prescriptive rebates.
    • Rebates may be subject to income tax. Consult your tax advisor for more information.
    • MidAmerican Energy Company reserves the right to withhold payment or award the incentive in the form of a bill credit for customers in arrears.
    • MidAmerican Energy Company, its program implementation contractors and their subcontractors reserve the right to request additional supporting documentation, if necessary, to ensure measure eligibility and verify existing system performance and baseline conditions.
    • MidAmerican Energy Company, its program implementation contractors and their subcontractors reserve the right to conduct on-site verification of equipment installation, install metering devices on new equipment, and to verify sales receipts and other project documentation at any time before or after issuing a rebate.
    • MidAmerican Energy Company, its program implementation contractors and their subcontractors do not endorse any particular manufacturer, product or system design in promoting this incentive program. 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 and their subcontractors be held liable for any incidental or consequential damages or injuries resulting from defective equipment or installation arising out of 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 Jan. 1, 2021 through Dec. 31, 2021, 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.
    Additional Custom Project Qualifications   
    • Custom projects require preapproval by MidAmerican Energy Company.
      • After an application is preapproved by MidAmerican Energy Company, the customer will receive written notification of the preapproved incentive amount and the energy savings measures must be fully installed within six months of preapproval to qualify for incentive payments. Temporarily increased to 12 months of preapproval for 2021.
      • 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.
    • For custom projects, the rebates for electric projects are $0.08-$0.12 per kWh of first year savings. The rebates for natural gas projects are $1/therm of first year savings. 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. Temporarily increasing electric projects to $0.12-0.18 per kWh and natural gas savings to $1.50/therm of first-year savings and cannot exceed 70% of the eligible project cost for 2021.
