Standard Incentives

Incentives are paid on a per-unit-installed basis and are available for a variety of qualified improvements. Projects that include all Standard measures do not require pre-approval unless the incentive is anticipated to be more than $10,000. Eligibility for a Standard Incentive requires customers to install measures achieving a minimum total incentive of $150 per application. All Standard Incentive applications must be submitted within 180 days of equipment invoice date.

Custom Incentives                         

If your energy efficiency improvement is not on the Standard Incentives list, it may be eligible for a Custom Incentive. Virtually any cost-effective energy efficiency project qualifies for a BizSavers incentive, including specialized systems and equipment. Custom Incentives are calculated based on the projected annual energy reduction. These incentives require a pre-approval incentive offer before equipment purchase or installation
