Eastern Iowa REC Rebate Program


Inquire about rebates for variable speed drives, agriculture and commercial equipment.  Contact an Eastern Iowa REC member service specialist, toll free, 1-800-728-1242 or e-mail: member.service@easterniowa.com.

All rebates are mutually exclusive and at the discretion of the Cooperative.  All rebates less than $100 will be credited to the member's electric bill.  At the Cooperative’s discretion, rebates of any amount will be applied to any past due amounts on the member’s electric bill.  Members must apply for rebates with six months of the purchase date (as shown on the member's invoice.)  Past eligibility, however, does not guarantee that equipment will meet criteria for current programs in effect. 

All rebate forms are now available with the "fill-in" option so they can be completed online rather than printing the form out and then filling in the data.  Please be sure to complete the following steps when submitting a rebate packet:
1. Click on the link for the form you wish to submit.
2. Enter all the information in the required fields.
3. Print out the completed form.
4. Sign all pages where required.
5. Mail the completed form, along with any supporting documentation or receipts to: REBATES, Eastern Iowa REC, PO Box 3003, Wilton, IA 52778-3003.
6. Please note, you cannot save or email the completed rebate form.
7. Print a second copy of the rebate form for your own records.

Safety Tips
Pick up the phone before the shovel...
Pick up the phone before you pick up a shovel. In many areas, homes are served by underground electric lines. If you’re digging near an underground cable and cut into a line, not only will you probably interrupt service to your home, but you could also receive a serious shock! One call can start the process to ensure your project will be safely completed. Contact Iowa One Call toll free, dial 811 for information to help you dig safely this spring.
