Residential Rebates

 

Energy Efficiency Incentives

for Jackson County REMC Members

 

In an effort to lower the total system demand of electricity for Jackson County REMC and to delay the need of new generating capacity for our wholesale power supplier, Hoosier Energy, we are offering the following energy efficiency incentives. Incentives apply to equipment installed and operating in the current calendar year in homes or structures connected to Jackson County REMC. Interpretation of qualifying equipment and installations are at the sole discretion of Jackson County REMC. Some restrictions may apply. Jackson County REMC reserves the right to modify or discontinue the incentives at any time without notice.

Contact our Member Services Department for more information.
