FirstEnergy offers incentives for non-residential customers who construct or renovate buildings which implement a range of energy efficient techniques in construction and operation. Incentives are only available to customers submitting new construction or major renovation projects for LEED-Certification. Major renovation projects include certified building plans for change of use and reconstruction of an existing building or vacant building. Incentives up to $5,000 are available to offset the cost of LEED certification, while up to $15,000 is available for projects based upon projected kWh saved. All New Construction Incentive requests are subject to review and approval by the program staff. To request New Construction Incentives, submit a completed New Construction Incentives request form to the program administrators. A formal pre-approval letter from the program must be received prior to receiving LEED certification. Contact FirstEnergy or visit the program web site listed above for further details.
