Please Note: Effective December 13, 2015, we will no longer offer rebates for the Air Conditioning Upgrade Rebate program. We filed a request with the Missouri Public Service Commission (MoPSC) to allow us to continue to offer rebates for heating and cooling equipment upgrades in 2016 through 2018. Please check in as we provide further updates. Payments for upgrades to air conditioners submitted prior to December 12, 2015, will still be available.

Why you should upgrade your air conditioner

  • An energy-efficient air conditioner reduces your energy use
