Natural Gas is considered to be one of the safest and most reliable energy sources available. In addition to the electrical rebates offered by HPU the $450.00 natural gas application fee will be waived for customers switching from fuel oil, propane, or wood to natural gas. Converting from steam no longer qualifies for the incentive program.

The Hibbing Public Utilities Commission (HPUC) offers Powergrant rebates for its commercial customers. The rebates may be awarded to any commercial customer that installs a proven high-efficiency electric technology.
The following end-use technologies provide a partial list of qualifying examples:
The rebates are based on kWhr savings according to the following formula:
Rebate = $0.035 per kWhr saved (for all equipment with a minimum life of 5 years)
Rebates must be approved prior to installation, and must be completed within 12 months of the approval date. The rebate will be awarded only after the installation has been completed and inspected by the HPUC. Maximum rebate per customer = $3,000.
The terms of this program are subject to change at any time based on HPUC program participation, and fund availability.
