Custom programs provide rebates for the installation of innovative and unique energy efficient equipment and products. They allow for incentives that may not fit into the standard prescriptive model, but more appropriately meet your specific operations and process needs.

Energy Efficiency Can Save You Money

Power costs are explained in the Power Distribution Comparison illustration that demonstrates why electricity can cost more in our Upper Peninsula service area. Because the cost of electricity will not dramatically decrease, the very best thing you can do to lower your electric bill is to improve your energy efficiency.

Two factors that cause higher electricity consumption in many Upper Peninsula structures are lack of appropriate insulation and outdated appliances that use much more electricity than newer options.

UPPCO wants to help you make your home more energy efficient so you can lower your energy bills. Check out our Energy Tips to make some small changes that could add up to big savings.
