On April 1, the Bandera Electric Cooperative began offering two rebate programs to encourage energy efficiency for members and cost savings for the cooperative.

The rebates are available now in limited numbers for solar energy systems and outdoor LED lights, the BEC said in a news release.

“The adoption of LED lighting and solar energy reduces the cost of power we buy,” said BEC CEO William Hetherington. “Encouraging energy conservation through these valuable rebates will help BEC continue to keep its rates low, which benefits all of our members.” 

The cooperative is striving to promote renewable energy by offering $1,000-$2,500 rebates for solar energy systems installed by BEC Solar in the cooperative’s service territory.

The rebates will be based on the size of the solar energy system.

To qualify for a rebate, the solar energy system must be installed and the rebate form submitted by Oct. 31, the news release said.

It advised anyone interested in the rebates to call BEC Solar at 830- 331-4500 for more information. 

Outdoor LED light rebates will cover the cost to replace or install a new outdoor LED light, including the installation fee and equipment fees related to the light.

To qualify for a light system rebate, the lights must be installed and the rebate form submitted to the cooperative by Oct. 31. 

“These rebate opportunities reaffirm BEC’s commitment to reducing power costs and improving the energy efficiency of the electric system,” said Hetherington. “They are one more way we provide value to our members.” 

Officials said the rebates are being granted on a first-come, first-served basis.
