The Northern Indiana Public Service Company has announced an expansion of
programs for homes and businesses which invest in energy efficient equipment
by adding new money and energy-saving product rebates.
“With the addition of new types of rebates, we hope to encourage more people
to choose high efficiency equipment for their homes and businesses,” Kevin
Kirkham, director of energy efficiency programs, said in a statement
released today. “Since our rebate program began in 2008, more than $8
million in rebates have been given to customers.”
The Energy Efficiency Rebate Program is a cash-back rebate offer that helps
NIPSCO residential customers better afford high efficiency options when
replacing electric and/or natural gas equipment. Qualifying products include
furnaces, boilers, water heaters, heat pumps and programmable thermostats.
Rebates range from $20 for a programmable thermostat to $500 for a ductless
heat pump. Applications and a list of qualifying products, including brands
and models, are available at NIPSCO.com/SaveEnergy or by calling (800)
Meanwhile, commercial and industrial natural gas customers now have access
to additional incentives as well. By combining the new Custom Incentive
Program and Prescriptive Incentive Program, eligible businesses could
receive more than $1 million per year for upgrading existing equipment or
For commercial and industrial electric customers, additional rebates are
also available through NIPSCO’s partnership with Energizing Indiana, a
statewide energy efficiency effort. Businesses or organizations which
purchase efficient lighting, HVAC, kitchen appliances and more can take
advantage of these savings.
A full list of programs available to NIPSCO customers to help manage energy
use can be found at NIPSCO.com/SaveEnergy. These programs support NIPSCO’s
efforts to reach statewide energy efficiency goals of two percent by 2019.
