Electric Water Heater Rebates
If you’re in the market for a new electric water heater, Corn Belt Energy offers rebates for members. Buy an electric 40-gallon water heater and you’ll receive a $100 rebate; purchase a 50-gallon or larger electric unit and you'll receive a rebate check for $125. You can purchase your water heater from any retailer, and we encourage you to buy an energy efficient model with good insulation.
To claim your rebate, fax, e-mail, or mail a copy of your receipt to us at:
Corn Belt Energy
Make sure to include the size of the water heater, your name, and your Corn Belt account number with your receipt copy and you'll receive a rebate check within 4 weeks.
And if you install your new water heater on the basement floor, we suggest you set it on a 1" or 2" Styrofoam insulation pad to prevent heat from migrating to the floor.
NOTE: To receive a water heater rebate, co-op members must also agree to allow Corn Belt to place a load management switch on the water heater (at no cost), which is eligible for bill credits of $4.50/month for June - September bills. The load management switch will turn your water heater off periodically during peak load times during the summer, typically in the late afternoon on very hot days. This load management switch minimally affects your hot water while allowing the cooperative to reduce electric load during peak usage times which saves money by avoiding peak power charges from our power supplier. To receive the bill credit, member must use a minimum of 400 kWh per summer month (June - September).
