Minnesota cooperatives and municipals in Minnkota Power Cooperative’s service territory are providing incentives for their residential customers to improve the energy efficiency of their homes through the PowerSavers program. In addition to the rebates shown above, trained staff can visit the home and directly install water-saving devices, turn down water heater temperature as needed and install CFLs. While on site, the member services staff will also conduct a quick energy assessment. This includes taking a 10-point checklist of the home – the purpose of which is to record other future energy-saving opportunities.
