Energy conservation and efficiency strategies play significant roles for Minnesota cooperatives and municipals in Minnkota Power Cooperative’s service territory. As part of the Next Generation Energy Act of 2007, the Minnesota Legislature overhauled the state’s Conservation Improvement Program (CIP), which was renamed Energy Efficiency and Conservation. The new legislation transitions utilities from a spending requirement program into an energy savings program.
Realizing that meeting the state mandate posed a significant challenge, the Minnkota Power Cooperative (MPC) and Northern Municipal Power Agency (NMPA) Joint System decided that it would be beneficial to work together. The group has collaborated ideas and resources under the PowerSavers name and logo.
PowerSavers features a comprehensive set of energy efficiency and conservation programs that include both residential and business programs in its portfolio. The programs offer a variety of financial incentives for making energy-efficient upgrades.
P.K.M. Electric Cooperative, Inc. is offering new residential and business rebates to our member/owners as part of an incentive program to encourage installation of energy efficient equipment. Rebate forms are available by clicking here or by
