By taking advantage of the Sustainable Energy Program, you can save money, help reduce the need for energy during expensive peak periods and help delay the necessity to build high-cost power plants.
LES incentive funds are available to residential and business customers for preapproved energy-efficient equipment. So first take a look at the qualifying equipment below and then contact a contractor for bids.

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. 2, 2017.
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 $500 per system for qualifying central air conditioners, air source heat pumps. Geothermal heat pumps can qualify for up to $1,500 per system. Incentives for central air conditioners and air source heat pumps are determined by both EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio) and SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio). Geothermal incentives are determined by the EER. All are compared to existing energy code minimums.
Incentive payments are available for customers reducing electrical demand and costs associated with lighting (within 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. Screw-in bulbs do not qualify. All new lighting products must be LED.
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 upgrade, energy management systems installation, optimization or upgrade, refrigeration system and custom lighting. In addition, customers can work with their assigned LES account executive to tailor a program that results in reduced system peak demand.
