Comanche Electric Cooperative is proud to announce our new ecoPOWR Energy Rebate Program. This program has been designed to encourage cooperative members to select cost effective energy efficiency measures that will reduce power cost in their home and business. The program will offer rebates when members install more efficient lighting, electric heating and cooling equipment, attic insulation, low flow shower heads, low flow faucet aerators, water heater blankets for electric water heaters, hot water pipe insulation and commercial lighting upgrades.
A Rebate Application and a verification of purchase and installation must be submitted in order to receive your rebate.
** CECA rebates are available for the following qualifying purchases and/or services. The availability of the CECA Rebate Program is limited and rebates will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. When funds have been depleted, the CECA Rebate Program will no longer be available until the beginning of the next calendar year, pending board approval. Members must submit all required documentation to be eligible for rebates. Program specifics subject to change.
