      Thanks for taking an interest in the energy efficiency programs in North Dakota, including ours.

      Actually, there are a number of rebate programs for ND residents. All electric cooperative members are eligible for the North Dakota Association of Rural Electric Cooperatives (NDaREC) rebate program. Learn more about it at Also, other distribution co-ops in the state are offering their own rebate program like ours, including Dakota Valley Electric Co-op and 13 others across the state.

      When you combine the distribution co-op rebates with the NDaREC's and the federal tax incentives savings quickly add up and it's money back in your pocket!
