Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (SMMPA) is a joint-action agency which generates and sells reliable electricity at wholesale to its eighteen non-profit, municipally-owned member utilities, and develops innovative products and services to help them deliver value to customers. With help from SMMPA, Grand Marais Public Utilities provides incentives for its residential and commercial customers to improve the energy efficiency of homes. Rebates are available for qualified dishwashers, clothes washers, air conditioners (central and room), ceiling fans with lighting, light fixtures (e.g., torchieres, hardwired CFLs, hardwired LED's), heat pumps (air source and geothermal), dehumidifiers, refrigerators, and freezers. Appliances must be ENERGY STAR to qualify for the rebate, and bonus incentives are available in some cases if the old working appliance is properly recycled. Customers should call Grand Marais Public Utilities or visit the program web site for more information.
