The Nebraska Public Power District offers rebates to homeowners who purchase energy efficient heat pumps, upgrade their insulation, install LED lighting, and/or have their cooling system tuned-up. The High Efficiency Heat Pump Program offers rebates for both air-source and geothermal heat pumps. Once the installing contractor has installed the heat pump, they must conduct a Performance Verification Test of the system. Results from this test must be attached to the program application. If the installed heat pump is 14 SEER or higher, the installing contractor can also receive a $50 rebate.
The Cooling System Tune-Up Program offers a $30 incentive to homeowners that have any type of cooling system tuned-up. Customers are eligible for only one incentive every three years. Finally, Nebraska Public Power District provides rebates of $0.15 per square foot of insulation (up to $300) when customers add 6 inches or R-19 to their attic. Review the program brochures and applications, available on the program website, for more information.
