Thank you for embracing the value and benefits of Energy Star® labeled appliances over the past several years!
The Minnesota State legislation has mandated we incent our members – residential and commercial members - to save kilowatt-hours. Together as part of the Minnkota Power Cooperative system, we have developed many different conservation incentives on qualifying purchases and installations as part of the PowerSavers program. Simply fill out the forms below. Some restrictions apply.
*Please note that these incentives can be paired with the Powerful Value rebates for even more savings.
The Powerful Value rebates are designed to assist members adding more off-peak electric heating equipment to our system. This in turn will increase the system utilization or load factor, which is a measure of the efficiency of the electrical system required to meet peak demand. The higher our load factor, the lower the average cost per kWh delivered or sold by the system. These rebates are paid out by Minnkota Power Cooperative, our power supplier. The PowerSavers incentives are designed to meet Minnesota Legislative mandates to encourage residential and commercial members to save kWh by installing energy efficient electrical equipment. These rebates/incentives are paid out by Beltrami Electric. As a member of Beltrami Electric you can benefit from both of this program, which can offset a portion of the equipment cost.
For more information, please contact Beltrami Electric's Energy Services Department at 218-444-2540.
