Cuming County Public Power District (CCPPD), in partnership with Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) and its other wholesale customers, is offering energy efficiency programs to assist customers in becoming more energy efficient. The purpose of programs under the EnergyWiseSM logo is to make electric customers more aware of ways they can use electrical energy more efficiently and the savings that come with these practices.

Commercial HVAC System (View Details)
The commercial HVAC program allows rebates to businesses for installing water-cooled or air cooled air conditioners or air source, water source, or ground source heat pumps. The rebate is dependent on total tonnage of the unit(s) and/or one of two performance ratings, either the SEER or the Actual EER.
