Energy Efficiency

NIPCO Energy Efficiency Programs

Offered Through Our Member Cooperatives


NIPCO's mission as an electric generation and transmission cooperative is to provide wholesale energy supply, telecommunications, and related services for the benefit of our seven member cooperatives and the communities of western Iowa in a safe, reliable, affordable, and environmentally responsible manner. 


In doing so, NIPCO provides rebates and incentive programs that are offered to over 31,000 member-owners living in western Iowa through our distribution cooperatives.

These programs promote the efficient use of energy, encourage member-owned distributed generation through policies that ensure equitable exchange of energy, load control, and the opportunity to invest in renewable energy development. 


Collectively, Iowa’s electric cooperatives invested almost $76.7 million over the past five years, contributing to over 3.7 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy savings over the life of the measures installed (as of December 31, 2016). This savings represents enough electricity to power more than 347,000 homes for a full year!
