AEP's Commercial and Industrial Standard Offer Program (C&I SOP) pays incentives to service providers who install energy efficiency measures in commercial or industrial facilities that are located within AEP's Arkansas service territories. A variety of prescriptive rebates are available to commercial and industrial customers in a range of industries. Schools, non-profits, hospitals, government buildings and institutional facilities are all eligible for incentives under this program. These facilities must have a maximum demand of more than 50 kW and must receive their electricity from AEP Southwestern Electric Power (Arkansas service territory only). Incentives are based upon projected annual energy savings and peak demand savings. All equipment must meet efficiency requirements listed on program brochures. Custom measures are also available to customers who wish to reduce energy consumption and peak demand. Program details and application forms are located on the program web site. Contact AEP SWEPCO for more information on these programs or to request program brochures and documentation.
