Incentive/Summary The Ames Electric Department has two separ
The Ames Electric Department has two separate programs aimed at supporting energy efficiency improvements for its residential customers. One program provides rebates for the installation of energy efficient space conditioning units while the other offers direct installation of weatherization improvements subsequent to a utility-sponsored energy audit. The latter program is focused on low- to moderate-income customers. '''Space Conditioning Rebates''' Rebates are available for central AC units, window AC units, heat pumps (air- and ground-source), and programmable thermostats. Rebates are limited to 2 window AC units and 3 programmable thermostats per household. Units must meet the minimum efficiency requirements specified by the utility. Central AC rebate applications must be accompanied by a "proper sizing report" from a cooling professional to be completed ''before the installation''. Energy Star documentation is required with window AC and programmable thermostat applications. '''Weatherization Assistance''' The Ames Electric Department provides free energy audits and the direct installation of simple energy saving technologies in homes built prior to 1992. It is important to note that this is ''not'' a rebate program, so the utility will not reimburse customers for self-installed weatherization improvements. The measures employed are home-specific and at the discretion of the audit team and home owner. Examples of typical improvements include window caulking, weather stripping, insulation, water heater insulation, and up to 6 compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs). Funds for the program are limited and preference is given to low- and moderate-income households. Residents participating in other energy assistance or weatherization programs are not eligible for this program. For further details and program applications, please contact the Ames Electric Department or visit the program webpage.
