Commercial, Industrial and Agricultural Energy Efficiency Incentive Program

With lighting and motor load being some of the largest users of energy in commercial, industrial and agriculture buildings and operations, improving the efficiency of these applications can save energy and reduce operating costs.

As an incentive, energy efficiency rebates are available on the installation of qualifying energy efficient lighting and motor load installations in new or existing applications that are served by a Nishnabotna Valley REC Member.

A. Lighting Rebates

  1. CFL, T-8 and/or t-5 Fluorescent Tubes: $100 / kW minimum 0.5kW
  2. LED: $300 / kW minimum of 0.5kW
  3. Reduced Wattage Metal Halide Low Ballast Lamps: $25 / kW minimum of 0.5kW

B. Variable Speed Motors and Soft Start Devices

* Note: seasonal applications are not eligible for this rebate.

  1. New variable speed energy efficiency motors installed in a commercial, industrial or agricultural building: $40 per horse power / cap of $5,000
  2. Qualifying soft start devices must be installed on an existing motor in a commercial, industrial or agricultural building: $40 per horse power (based on the horsepower of the motor the soft start device is connnected to.)

D. Controlled Non-Residential Water Heater

  1. Eligible units must be 80 gallons or greater with heating elements totaling 18 kW or more.
  2. Eligible units must meet or exceed the thermal energy efficiency and standby loss requirements of the U.S. Department of Energy and the current edition of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) 90.1 standards: $20 per installed kW

Terms and Conditions

The rebates listed above must meet the following terms and conditions:

  1. All lighting or motor equipment must be new equipment, and must be purchased and installed in the calendar year 2017 on a Nishnabotna Valley REC’s electric system.
  2. The rebate does not apply for seasonal loads except for irrigation systems that participate in the load management program.
  3. A copy of the equipment invoice being rebated must be submitted to Nishnabotna Valley REC.
  4. A Nishnabotna Valley REC representative will inspect the installation prior to the rebate being paid to verify that it has been installed and is operating.
