The no-cost Commercial Solutions Program is designed to help businesses, cities and counties address rising energy costs through energy efficiency improvements. The program offers objective, third-party consulting on energy usage and efficiency. This support helps customers identify cost-effective projects, properly evaluate vendor proposals, and leverage the resulting energy savings and cash incentives to finance additional improvements. Eligible customers include any commercial AEP distribution customer who owns or operates a site with a maximum peak demand of more than 50 kW. An incentive of $0.060/kWh and $175/kW is available for projects which result in verifiable energy savings. Technical assistance, program management, and communications support services are also offered through this program. Cities, private schools, counties, manufacturing, hospitals, retail, hotels, restaurants and other facilities are eligible for this incentive.
