How it works
How to participate
- Be a residential electric customer of MidAmerican in Iowa or Illinois
- Own and occupy a single-family home
- Have a compatible central air conditioner or an air-source heat pump
- Smart thermostat
The smart thermostat option allows MidAmerican to adjust your thermostat temperature setting through your home’s Wi-Fi. Currently, only certain Google Nest, ecobee and Honeywell Home smart thermostats are eligible. As a participant, you will receive a $30 end-of-season incentive if you remain enrolled the entire season. If participation begins or ends during the four-month period, MidAmerican will prorate your incentive accordingly. It only takes a few clicks to enroll for the summer!
Don't have a smart thermostat? MidAmerican offers qualified customers in Iowa and Illinois a rebate of up to $75 for the purchase and installation of an ENERGY STAR® smart thermostat. Before shopping for your new thermostat, make sure it is a SummerSaver-eligible model.
- Load Control Receiver (LCR)
MidAmerican installs a small cycling device on your home near the central air conditioning unit. The device is wired into your existing thermostat control circuit and acts as a switch, allowing us to cycle your air conditioner or air-source heat pump on and off. As a participant, you will receive a $30 end-of-season incentive the first year and a $20 incentive in following years, if you participate the entire season. If participation begins or ends during the four-month period, MidAmerican will prorate your incentive accordingly.
To participate, call 800-437-2976. Participation is limited.
