Ameren Act on Energy: Regardless of the industry you serve, Ameren offers equipment-specific incentives and programs for businesses to install more energy efficient lighting, HVAC, water heaters, specialty equipment, water-saving devices, process steam and steam traps, variable frequency drives, new construction, retro commissioning, leak survey and repairs, and custom incentives. Pre-approval is recommended for large projects. The award is on a reimbursement basis, so pre-approval is getting a commitment from the program before materials are purchased.

MCEC Geothermal Rebates: Monroe County Electric Co-op (MCEC) will rebate $1,000 to members who install a geothermal system (minimum of 3-tons) as long as the member qualifies as an “all-electric” account. The minimum requirement to be rated as an “all-electric” account is that the member must have electric as their main source of heat along with an electric water heater (minimum of 50 gallons in size). “Members” are businesses or residents in non-incorporated areas in our region who have joined the Co-op.

MCEC Heat Pump Rebates: Monroe County Electric Co-op (MCEC) will rebate $500 to members who install a heat pump (minimum of 3-tons and SEER rating of 15) as long as the member qualifies as an “all-electric” account. The minimum requirement to be rated as an “all-electric” account is that the member must have electric as their main source of heat along with an electric water heater (minimum of 50 gallons in size).

MCEC Capital Credits: Members of the Monroe County Electric Co-op are eligible for annual capital credits. MCEC returns all excess revenue over expenses to the members of the Co-op.  Each year, this net margin – or Capital Credit – is credited to the capital account of each member in proportion to the amount of electric power purchased at such times as the financial condition of MCEC permits. MCEC has returned a total of well over $3M to its members.
