Indianola Municipal Utilities offers a variety of incentives for their residential customers to increase the energy efficiency of their homes. IMU provides rebates for energy efficient clothes washers, refrigerators, central air conditioners, geothermal heat pumps, insulation and windows. Rebates for attic insulation are based on the attic square footage. Low-e glass windows and doors will be based on the square footage of the glass area only. Basement wall insulation must be verified by IMU before covered and square footage will be determined by the walls minus any doors and windows. These rebates can not be combined with the Good Cents rate discount program.
