Smart Energy rebates are designed to support Ames Electric Services customers in lowering their emissions related to energy usage. We provide you the incentive to increase the efficiency of your air conditioner, purchase Energy Star rated appliances, or build more energy-efficient homes. It's important to note that as advances are made in energy-saving, our rebates change, also. We have built these programs around asking customers to strive for the next level of energy savings. Keep saving energy and doing your part to lower our community’s carbon footprint.
