Farmer's Electric Cooperative (Kalona) offers rebates for the installation of small wind and solar photovoltaic (PV) systems to its member customers. The amount of the rebate is set at $1,000 per peak kilowatt (kW) for both technologies, with a maximum rebate of $5,000. It is only available for systems placed in service after January 1, 2008. Rebates for both wind and solar systems require a site assessment and are subject to prior approval of metering and installation arrangements. Equipment must be new and permanently installed by a professional installer on the customer's premises. Total rebates are limited to $20,000 per year; rebates may be taken in addition to any state and federal incentives.
