Cooling Efficiency

Save energy and reduce costs with cooling efficiency.

Taking steps to upgrade or improve the efficiency of your cooling equipment can help your business gain year-over-year energy and cost savings. Whether you want to upgrade your entire cooling system or just specific components, our cooling rebates can help lower your up-front costs and speed up the payback period of your energy-saving project.

To get started

Select a rebate option that matches your energy-saving project and follow the steps.

Earn fixed rebates for purchasing qualifying energy-efficient equipment, including:

Cooling equipment upgrades that do not qualify for a prescriptive rebate may still qualify for a custom rebate. Apply for custom rebates online here. We require pre-approval, and eligible projects can earn up to $400/kW saved.

Keeping Cool
Learn how one hotel manager replaced an aging HVAC system with a new energy-efficient system. He cut cooling costs while keeping customers comfortable -- and used Xcel Energy rebates to help him sell the idea of slightly more expensive high efficiency system to upper management.

Break Ground, Not the Law

Always call 811 before digging in your yard to avoid hitting buried gas or electric lines. Not only is it the safe thing to do, but it's the law.
