Skyline from MooreSmart Energy Rebates 

 Smart Energy rebates are designed for Ames Electric Services customers to make the commitment to using less energy. We provide you the incentive to upgrade your lighting, purchase Energy Star rated appliances, or build more energy-efficient homes. It's important to note that as advances are made in energy-saving, our rebates change, also. We have built these programs around asking customers to strive for the next level of energy savings. Keep saving energy and doing your part to lower your carbon footprint.

NOTE: Program changes have been made.  As of September 1, 2015 Smart Energy:

  • Added a dehumidifier and electric dryer rebate to the Appliance Rebate Program
  • Removed CFL's from the High Efficiency Lighting Rebate program
  • Will now only rebate electronic ballast and T8's if they replace T12 - 40 watt fluorescent in he High Efficiency Lighting Rebate program
