Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative

Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative's (SMECO) Non-Residential Energy Efficiency Program provides technical assistance and a range of incentives to commercial, industrial, municipal and institutional customers who employ energy efficient measures in new and existing facilities. The program offers prescriptive rebates for specified energy efficiency measures, while custom incentives are offered for applications which are not covered by the prescriptive program. Eligible measures include HVAC systems, lighting, building controls, vending machine controls, variable frequency drives and commercial refrigeration. Under both the prescriptive and custom programs, incentives may cover up to 50% of a project's cost. Some rebates vary by size, efficiency and type of measure employed. Equipment must meet program guidelines listed on the web site above. Interested customers should check the web site to ensure eligibility and view program overview.
