Contact participating contractors and ask about LES incentive funds and if manufacturer rebates are available. Ask your accountant if you qualify for federal tax incentives.
Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Jan. 1, 2016.
Customers in existing homes and commercial buildings with no wall or minimal attic insulation (R-19 or less) can qualify for up to $1,000 to seal penetrations and upgrade insulation levels to current energy code standards. Incentives are available at $0.80/square foot for wall insulation and $0.50/square foot for attic insulation. A pre and post blower door test also is required. Talk to one of the Sustainable Energy Program participating contractors for further details.
Customers could receive up to $900 per ton for qualifying air conditioners, air source heat pumps and geothermal heat pumps. Incentives are determined by the EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) compared to existing energy code minimums.
Incentive payments of $500 per kilowatt reduced are available for customers reducing electrical demand and costs associated with lighting (in existing or new buildings). Demand, energy reductions and associated incentives for lighting in new facilities are determined by comparing wattage of new fixtures to existing energy code minimums.
This program is designed to help commercial and industrial customers achieve peak-demand savings through one or more efficiency measures. Components of the program include air conditioner/heat pump replacement, variable frequency drives, compressed air systems analysis and upgrade, energy management systems installation, optimization or upgrade and systems commissioning. In addition, customers can work with their assigned LES account executive to tailor a program that results in reduced system peak demand.
