To work cohesively between Western Farmers Electric Cooperative (WFEC) and each of our Cooperatives to promote efficient use of energy with the long term goal of reducing future capacity requirements. This is not a "Marketing Program" rather a means by which to educate our Co-op's consumers and promote energy efficiency as stated above. The initial focus of the Energy Efficiency Rebate Program (EERP) will center on HVAC equipment with rebates being offered for the installation of Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) meeting specified efficiency ratings.
