DMEA offers a variety of rebate programs designed to help both homeowners and business owners save money on their electric bill. Please use the following links below to learn about the programs available for your home or business.
DMEA’s residential rebate programs are designed to help members save money on their home electric bill, while also removing inefficient appliances and equipment from our lines. A portion of the funding for our rebates is made available through our wholesale power provider, Tri-State Generation and Transmission Association.
Rebate applications must be submitted to DMEA within 120 days of purchase. Applications must include receipts and proof of refrigerant disposal when applicable. Receipts must include model number(s). DMEA reserves the right to audit any appliance purchase for which a rebate application has been submitted. 2019 is the final year for LED rebates. All rebate must be submitted by Monday, December 16, 2019.
