Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) offers energy credit refunds to its residential customers for installing high-efficiency heat pumps through the Energy Conservation Program. Newly constructed homes with electric heat pumps larger than 1.5 tons with a SEER rating of 13 or greater are eligible for a rebate of $200 - $400. Existing homes which meet this same standard are eligible for rebates of $100 - $200. OPPD will also provide $50 per unit for heat pumps 1.5 tons and smaller.

The rebate is available to any customer who either purchases and installs a new high-efficiency heat pump or replaces an existing standard air conditioner with a heat pump and is using natural gas or propane for supplemental heating. Customers who install a heat pump are also eligible to receive the special [ Residential Conservation Heat Pump Rate 115], which is the same as the standard residential rate except for a lower last rate block during the winter billing period (October through May). In order to qualify, the electric heat pump must supply at least 50 percent of the space conditioning requirements for the building and have an outdoor thermostat setting of 20° F or lower.
