Energy Efficient Appliances
Become Proficient in Being Energy Efficient
Everything you do—from flipping a switch to upgrading your appliances—can add up to big energy savings. When MVEA members participate in one of our energy efficiency programs, they not only use less electricity, they are also helping to reduce the overall demand for electricity within our co-op’s service territory. We continue to raise the bar and increase our efforts to promote energy efficiency.
A cost-effective way to start saving on your electric bill and to become more energy efficient is to update the electrical appliances in your home. Tri-State Generation and Transmission (Tri-State), MVEA’s power supplier, partners with us to offer an Energy Efficiency Rebate program that extends beyond LED light bulbs. Members are able to offset the cost of upgrading to more modern energy-efficient models with appliance-specific rebates that include electric water heaters, central air conditioners, refrigerators, dishwashers, and other appliances.
If you are wondering what your estimated annual appliance costs are, then we have a tool for you! The Appliance Calculator allows you to compare annual appliance costs.
