AEP Ohio

AEP Ohio offers incentives to commercial customers who are building a new facility or are performing a major renovation. Incentives are provided for upgrading lighting, lighting controls, HVAC measures, commercial cooking equipment, variable frequency drives and custom measures among others. All equipment must meet program specifications for efficiency and installation. The program also offers a customized incentive whereby facilities can pursue Whole Building Performance upgrades and receive a rebate of $0.08 - $0.12/kWh first year savings. Under this program, the design team involved with the project will also receive a rebate of $0.02 - $0.04/kWh first year savings. Equipment eligible for prescriptive rebates must meet all program requirements and be installed in accordance with AEP procedures. Certain prescriptive incentives vary based upon the size and efficiency of the system installed. Generally, 50% of the total project cost is the incentive maximum across technologies. A sliding scale incentive reduction will be incorporated when the calculated incentive exceeds $100,000 per project.
