Heating and cooling use the largest chunk of your home energy dollars. When you choose electric, you know it’s clean, reliable, safe – and it can also be very energy efficient. It’s tough to beat the efficiency of an electric heat pump that not only cools your home in the summer, but also heats it in the winter.

Heat pumps – geothermal or air-to-air systems including ductless solutions – are designed to be used in any home whether it’s new construction, a renovation project or replacing existing equipment. Sioux Valley Energy offers rebates and special electric heat rates to make choosing electric a great value.

Keep your appliances on, your home warm, the game on TV, your sump pump running, and the lights shining during your next power interruption. Sioux Valley Energy is now offering services of installing interlock kits and Kohler standby generators to give you peace of mind for Mother Nature’s temperament.

  • Interlock Kit: One of the simplest and least expensive methods of readying your home for the connections of a portable generator is to install an interlock kit in the main electrical panel and a permanently installed generator inlet on the outside of your home. By feeding your entire electrical panel with the generator you will not have to run any extension cords from the generator throughout the house. Most interlock kits can be installed for less than $500.
  • Kohler Standby Generator: A permanently installed standby generator keeps your power on during an outage. It’s installed outside (like an AC unit) and comes on automatically—whether you are home or away—all within seconds of a power outage. There’s a higher investment to install a standby generator, but it takes all the work and worry out of dealing with a power interruption. The Kohler standby units come in a range of sizes from 10 KW to 20 KW. Loans are available up to $10,000, 5% interest with a 7-year term for the purchase and installation of standby generator equipment by the cooperative.

Contact Reggie Gassman, Manager of Customer Electrical Services, at 800-234-1960 for a quote and more information on generator options.

Portable Generator Safety

  • Operate the generator in a clean, dry, well ventilated area. Operate in an open area—never in an enclosed, confined structure such as a garage or basement. Breathing in the carbon monoxide exhaust fumes can cause serious injury or death and improper ventilation can lead to ignition of materials. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
  • Don’t overload the generator—know the rated capacity. Don’t tamper with factory engine speed settings. Read the manufacturer’s instructions for safe operation.
  • Turn off all equipment powered by a generator before shutting it down. Never fuel a generator while it is operating.
  • If your home has not been wired by a licensed electrician to have an interlock kit, don’t try to connect a generator directly to your home’s electrical system. In these applications, use heavy-duty, outdoor-rated three-pronged grounded extension cords and plug appliances directly into generators. Contact SVE if you would like us to install an interlock kit.

Commercial members can be reimbursed up to $1,000 for a third-party commercial energy audit to inspect a facility or calculate equipment efficiency/paybacks.

Up to $500 for equipment purchase and installation costs to businesses that promote the charging infrastructure for EVs

  • Install a Level 2 or larger charging station for public/employee use
