The Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives (AIEC) is providing energy audits and rebates to homeowners served by its 25 member organizations. All homeowners served by an AIEC electric cooperative are eligible for rebates. A residential energy assessment must be performed by the local electric cooperative to identify needed upgrades. Rebates will then be made available based upon on the recommended efficiency improvements. Rebates are available for geothermal heat pumps, air-source heat pumps, central air conditioning, furnaces, water heaters and building insulation. The maximum allowable rebate per homeowner is $1,500. Contact your local electric cooperative to schedule a home energy assessment. A list of AIEC member cooperatives is provided below.
