Applied for your permit? You’ve got 60 days to apply for incentives

Whether you are breaking ground or breaking down walls, high-efficiency equipment and systems can make your building more desirable to owners and tenants. We can help with incentives for building owners and design decision-makers for going high efficiency.

To qualify for incentives, you must apply within 60 days of permit application and complete your project before the end of 2020.

Interior, exterior, high bay, garage–LED upgrades in all these areas will use 75% less energy, last 25 times longer and can even improve the appearance of your facility. Incentives are available for lamps, fixtures and lighting controls such as sensors.

Your HVAC system may be your largest energy-saving opportunity: it typically consumes 25-70% of a non-industrial building's monthly electricity. When you install a high-efficiency unitary air conditioner or rooftop unit, you can receive $1,000 or more in incentives, while also cutting costs, improving building comfort and reducing maintenance requirements.

The bigger your project, the bigger your incentives

Choose from per-unit or preset incentives or customize your project calculation:

Prescriptive Incentives (for Agribusiness Measures only)

Per-unit incentives for Agribusiness measures
  • LED lighting and lighting controls

  • Recirculation ventilation

  • Creep heat pads

  • High temperature cut-out thermostat

  • Creep heat controller

  • Low energy livestock waterers

  • Photocell and timer for lighting control

  • Dual and natural exhaust ventilation

NOTE: the project minimum to receive Prescriptive incentives (or combined Prescriptive and Engineered Project) must have a minimum estimated incentive of $1,000 to qualify

If equipment/upgrade is not listed above, you may be eligible for incentives under Engineered or Custom incentive stream.

Engineered Incentives

  • Building owners can receive incentives based on preset calculations that estimate reductions in peak demand and/or electricity consumption after installation of more energy-efficient Unitary A/C, Interior and Exterior Lighting.

  • Up to $400 for every kilowatt saved or $0.05/kWh of first year energy savings for lighting measures

  • Up to $800 for every kilowatt saved or $0.10/kWh of  first year energy saved for non-lighting measures
