Whether you run a restaurant,
a school or a multi-building operation, making smart energy upgrades can save your business  time, energy and money.

What Types of Incentives Do We Offer?

Two types of incentives are available from a variety of smart energy technologies to help reduce the cost of implementing your energy upgrades—Standard and Custom. To apply for EnergyRight incentives to help reduce the cost of your energy upgrades, connect with a contractor in the Preferred Partners Network today.

Standard Incentives
Standard incentives are available for energy-related building improvements, including technology or equipment upgrades and renovation projects.
Commercial Building Revitalization
Thinking about renovating a space, installing smart energy technologies to save energy, or reducing operating expenses, raising occupant satisfaction and improving the appearance of a property?                       Our incentives are available for revitalization of a facility that has been vacant for four plus years and built before 2010.

Non-Road Electric Vehicles (NREV)

Whether you are considering an electric forklift, truck refrigeration unit, push back, tow tractor, or even a golf cart, electric options offer greater functionality.                  They also help increase safety, lower fuel and operating costs and reduced carbon emissions than gas-powered vehicles.

Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC)

When nearly half of your business’s energy costs stem from your HVAC system, it is wise to think about efficiency when adding or upgrading your systems. Energy-efficient equipment can have a big impact on employee and customer comfort while helping you save money on utility bills and protecting our climate. Incentives range from $125 to $210 a ton depending on the equipment and existing fuel type for certain kinds of heat pumps and air conditioners.

High-Volume Low-Speed (HVLS) Fans

If you are looking to keep your work environment cool and comfortable, an HVLS fan can be a wise upgrade for your business. Using a process known as "floor jet circulation," HVLS fans naturally exchange the air in very large spaces keeping fresh air constantly circulating and lowering the room temperature. We currently offer incentives that range from $200 to $700 for new HVLS fans in an unconditioned space.

Thermal Storage

Interested in cutting your company’s cooling costs? A thermal storage system may be right for you. Typically, cooling a facility is a business’s largest energy cost and on a hot day, cooling accounts for 40 percent of peak demand. Thermal storage allows a facility to shift energy use from periods of peak demand to off-peak, so you can spend less money on energy when you incorporate it into your project design by choosing the right equipment for your job.

Custom Incentives

Custom incentives may be available for projects not included under the standard incentive offering. EnergyRight and your local power company offer unbiased, reliable technical assistance and consultation to help identify custom facility opportunities. Incentives are available at a rate of up to $0.8 per annual kWh for the installation of most technologies. Custom lighting incentives are not available. 

Potential projects eligible for a custom incentive include, but are not limited to: 

  • Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system conversions
  • Chiller process improvements
  • Industrial and agricultural process improvements
