Summary 
Owatonna offers incentives to residential customers who install energy-efficient equipment in homes through the Conserve and Save Rebate Program. Equipment rebates for refrigerators, freezers and room air conditioners can be increased by properly recycling previously used, working units. Owatonna Public Utilities will reimburse the customer for the recycling costs if they have proof that they recycled an old unit and replaced it with an ENERGY STAR model. Rebate applications for measures purchased during the previous year are due by March 31 of the following year. 

All equipment requirements must be met in order to qualify for rebates. Rebates are available until calendar year program funding is exhausted. All rebates under $75 will be applied to the customer's account.
