Montana-Dakota Utilities (MDU) offers several residential rebates on energy efficient equipment for natural gas and electric customers. Natural gas customers are eligible for rebates on furnaces and programmable thermostats if the equipment meets program efficiency standards. New furnaces must be replacing a working model with an AFUE of 80% or less and be rated at least 90% AFUE. Programmable thermostats must be Energy Star qualified and are limited to one rebate per address. Electric customers are eligible for a rebate of $175/ton on central air conditioning systems. New systems must meet program efficiency standards outlined above and be replacing a system which is 10 SEER or less.

Rebate payments are issued in the form of U.S. Bank® Rebate Visa® Cards, for residential customers receiving rebates of $1,000 or less. Rebate payments of more than $1,000 are issued in the form of a check. Montana-Dakota does not issue rebates in the form of a utility bill credit. Application forms must be fully completed with equipment information such as invoice or receipt, brand, model number, serial number, installation date and dealer information. See program web site listed above to view application form or to see more program information. Only residential MDU customers living in Montana are eligible for rebates.
