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, Waseca Utilities provides incentives for its commercial and industrial customers to improve the energy efficiency of facilities. Rebates are available for a variety of energy-efficient equipment including appliances, lighting, cooling, motors, variable speed drives, anti-sweat heater controls for cooler/freezer doors, food service equipment (including ENERGY STAR rated), and custom measures. Each type of equipment has minimum efficiency and performance ratings which must be met in order to qualify for the rebate. Rebates on ENERGY STAR appliances are also available under the Residential Rebate Program. Customers should review the program web site or contact Waseca Utilities for more information.
