Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) offers incentives for commercial and industrial customers to install energy-efficient heat pumps and replace/retrofit existing lighting systems. The Commercial Heat Pump Program offers rebates for air-source, water-source, and geothermal heat pumps. The rebate of $50 per nominal ton is given in the form of a credit on the customer's electric bill. The OPPD Lighting Incentive Program offers rebates for a variety of T12 lamp fixtures, watt mercury vapor fixtures, metal halide fixtures, and exit signs. To qualify for the lighting incentive program, customers must first have a light audit and retrofit/replacement proposal done by an OPPD Trade Ally. A list of OPPD trade allies can be found on the program web site. A trade ally itemized invoice must be submitted within 30 days of project completion in order for the rebate to be issued.

Omaha Public Power customers can also participate in the utility's "Innovative Energy Efficiency Project (IEEP) Incentive Program."  Through the IEEP Program, commercial and industrial customers can recieve rebates for the cost of an energy study (50% of cost, up to $10,000), and $400 per kW of peak demand reduced as a result of implementing the measures suggested by the energy study.  Visit the program website or contact the utility directly for more information.
