City Continues Energy Rebate Program


February 9, 2018

The City of Sidney has a program with the potential of doubling a homeowner’s savings. There is a way to let the City pay residents to save energy and consequently money.

The Energy Efficiency Rebate program is a way for residents to receive a rebate for more efficient electrical appliances. Rebates cover up to half of the cost documented on submitted receipts. Receipts are required to receive a rebate.

The program includes Energy Star electric appliances, programmable thermostats, insulation, energy efficient doors and windows, heat pumps and florescent and LED lights.

The program offers rebates up to $150 and $75 per item annually. Rebates are applied to a resident’s city utility bill.

The program runs the calendar year, Jan. 1 through Dec. 31.

The application addresses LED and florescent light bulbs, programmable thermostats, air conditioner pipe insulation/water pipe insulation and Energy Star appliances. Thermostats can be rebated at 50 percent up to $75, as do insulation requests, appliances and heat pumps.

The application, with original receipts, must be completed and returned to the city offices for the homeowner to be eligible for a rebate.
