''''' Note: Due to possible funding constraints, all rebate applications must be pre-approved before purchasing any equipment.'''''
Groton Utilities, a municipal utility, offers incentives for commercial and industrial customers to install energy-efficient equipment in eligible facilities through several efficiency programs described in detail on the web site above. Rebates for:
*efficient lighting retrofits and vending machine controls (based on number of kilowatt-hours (kWh) saved)
*new energy-efficient lighting
*high-efficiency motors (based on the number, type, and efficiency rating of units installed)
*HVAC equipment (based on the system size and efficiency)
In some cases the rebate is limited to 50% of the total project cost. Applications are available on the utility's web site, and in some cases an application must be submitted for approval before construction begins. Groton Utilities may perform a post-installation inspection at the utility's discretion.
Groton Utilities also offers cash incentives for customers who participate in the utility's [http://www.grotonutilities.com/conserv.asp?l=1 Demand Response Program]. This voluntary program requires customers to reduce electricity consumption when the electric system is severely constrained and the price of electricity is high.
