Members are eligible for a new water heater rebate once every ten years per unit. Members are eligible for a new air-source heat pump rebate once every fifteen years per unit.


NOTE: To receive a water heater or heat pump rebate, co-op members must also agree to allow Corn Belt Energy to place a load management switch on the unit (at no cost). The load management switch will turn your unit 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 or home temperature while allowing the cooperative to reduce electric load during peak usage times which saves money by avoiding peak power charges from our power supplier. Member must consume a minimum monthly average of 400 kWh.
