Equipment must be purchased between January 1, 2023, and December 31, 2023, and installed and operating prior to submitting the final rebate application.

New in 2023, MidAmerican is offering Instant Discounts for residential natural gas furnaces and central air conditioners. Traditional prescriptive rebates are available for air-source heat pumps, mini splits and smart thermostats. See the rebates section for more details.

Instant Discounts

The Instant Discounts program offers incentives for the purchase and installation of qualifying energy-efficient equipment. By working with an Instant Discounts provider, the discount is automatically deducted from the purchase price, so there's no paperwork for customers to complete. Find an Instant Discounts provider via MidAmerican's Find a Contractor search tool. Trade Allies working with a participating distributor that would like to be listed as an Instant Discounts Provider on the search tool can contact a Trade Ally Ambassador.
Equipment Qualification(s) Instant Discount Range
Central air conditioners – AHRI Certified® <65 MBtuh and SEER ≥16 $101 – $412/unit
Natural gas furnaces – AHRI Certified® <225 MBtuh and AFUE 90% or greater $60 – $213/unit


Applications must be submitted within 90 days of dealer invoice or by December 31, 2023, whichever comes first. Applications can be submitted online. For prescriptive rebates (excluding smart thermostats), the rebate payment cannot exceed 50% of the installed cost (reasonable labor and material/equipment – reasonableness to be determined by MidAmerican). Installed cost includes contractor labor only and does not include internal labor. Smart thermostat rebates cannot exceed 50% of purchase price, excluding installation costs.
