MidAmerican Energy recently announced a 50% rebate increase for most high-efficiency equipment, including energy-efficient lighting options. This comes in an effort to help customers reduce out-of-pocket expenses during the pandemic.

Effective July 1st, 2020, rebates will increase by 50% for certain high efficiency electric and natural gas equipment for residents and small businesses customers in Iowa through December 31, 2020.
