As a business customer, you can apply for technical assistance and financial incentives to help ease the costs and challenges of energy efficiency improvements that you may want to undertake.


Commercial & Industrial Program

To qualify for the Commercial & Industrial (C&I) Program, an account’s monthly billing demand must exceed 1,000 kW per month (i.e., K-rate customers).

The maximum annual rebate a C&I customer can receive is 75% of the customer’s costs or $50,000, whichever is less.  Additional rebate funds are available for projects that achieve over 500,000 kWh in first-year savings.

  • Interior and exterior lighting
  • HVAC controls and equipment

To qualify, lighting must be used at least 1,800 hours per year and other equipment must operate at least 1,500 hours per year.

Custom Program

Our C&I Custom Program provides incentives to business customers who want to make improvements outside the parameters of the C&I Prescriptive Program. (Applications are accepted on a first come, first serve basis while annual funds are available.)

Compressed Air Maintenance Program

Commercial or industrial customers with compressed air systems can skip the full C&I or Small Business application and fill out a quick and easy Compressed Air Maintenance rebate application.  Pre-approval of the application is not required!

The application is designed for projects that consist of either compressed air leak studies (and repairs) or the purchase of engineered air nozzles. 

Compressed Air Audits & Leak Reduction

Leak studies are incentivized at $20/HP of the compressed air system, regardless of how many leaks are ultimately discovered.  The costs of the leak study will be covered at 100% of customer costs if:

  • The audit is performed by a qualified, independent contractor;
  • At least 50% of the leaks identified in the audit are repaired by either a contractor or the customer; and
  • A log is submitted with the rebate application that documents:
      • Leak location(s)
      • Leak volume(s)
      • Date of inspection
      • Date of repair(s)
      • Any leaks not fixed
      • Name of repair person
Engineered Air Nozzles

Engineered air nozzles installed in place of an open pipe or tube will be covered at 100% of the customer’s costs or $100 per nozzle, whichever is less.

Engineered nozzles not only significantly reduce energy use, but they also reduce noise levels and increase user safety by eliminating the risk of dead-end pressure injuries.
