A complete listing of presecriptive incentives can be found through the program website


The Energy Efficiency Program for Business offers prescriptive incentives for both electric and natural gas energy efficient improvements in areas of lighting, HVAC, processes, compressed air, insulation, food service, boiler/furnace tune-ups and other miscellaneous measures. 

Prescriptive incentives are available for one-for-one change outs, replacements or upgrades unless explicitly stated otherwise in the Program Catalog and Application. For a complete list of prescriptive electric and gas measures and to verify prescriptive incentive amounts or specifications please see the 2016 Program Catalog and Application. 

Custom incentives, based on the amount of estimated annual energy savings, are also available and apply to all energy efficiency improvement measures that are not eligible for a prescriptive incentive. The New Construction and Remodeling Program provides design assistance and incentives for more efficient buildings by installing energy-efficiency equipment and controls that are not required by building energy codes and are above standard construction practices.
