There is a wide range of energy-efficient solutions that can help organizations operate their businesses more efficiently and improve their bottom line. Incentives are available for energy saving equipment such as lighting, motors, pumps, compressed air, unitary air conditioning, variable frequency drives, and control systems.
There are three application options for a Retrofit incentive:
Prescriptive: The Prescriptive track provides the ease of selecting from a defined list of end-use measures that come with a corresponding per-unit incentive.
Engineered: The Engineered track consists of a series of pre-set calculation worksheets that help estimate the reduction of electricity consumption with the installation of more energy-efficient equipment.
Custom: The Custom track is available for more complex or innovative solutions not covered in the prescriptive or engineered tracks.
Lighting||Per unit incentives||$0.05/kWh of first year electricity savings||$0.05/kWh of first year electricity savings|
Non-lighting including lighting controls||Per unit incentives||$0.10/kWh of first year electricity savings||$0.10/kWh of first year electricity savings|
Note: Project incentive cannot exceed 50% of the eligible project costs.
