The Empire District Electric Company offers a Commercial/Industrial Prescriptive Rebate Program to its non-residential customers in Arkansas who purchase certain high-efficiency equipment for eligible facilities. A variety of prescriptive rebates are available to all electric customers served under any non-residential rate schedule in the Empire service territory. The rebates, which can be applied to both new construction and retrofit projects, are offered for high-efficiency lighting, air conditioning systems, heat pumps, chillers, motors and variable frequency drives. All equipment must meet certain energy efficiency standards listed on the program web site. Customers can also apply for custom rebates that fit the exact needs of a facility. Interested customers should fill out the prescriptive rebate application and worksheets located on the program web site to view all rebate levels. The amount to be rebated cannot exceed $20,000 during the first 9 months of the program year. Additional rebate funds may be available during the final 3 months if projects merit a larger incentive. Applications must be pre-approved by Empire electric before equipment is purchased and installed.
