MEAN LED Lighting Incentive.

The Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska (MEAN) is the wholesale power provider to Kimball, so as a customer of their utility, any commercially metered businesses/municipal buildings/schools in town are eligible for our LED lighting incentive program (the application is attached). A couple of items to note are that the program is limited to existing indoor fixtures and the maximum incentive per customer per program year is $2,500 (the program runs with MEAN’s fiscal year, April 1-March 31).  If you hit the $2,500 ceiling during this program year, you would be eligible for $2,500 on an additional project(s) after April 1, 2021.

MEAN now has three residential energy efficiency programs available – incentives for smart thermostat installation, cooling system tune-ups and for attic insulation. The attachments would be too large to email, but all of the information including flyers and applications can be found on the energy efficiency page of our website:
