City Water Light and Power (CWLP) offers rebates to help commercial customers increase the energy efficiency of participating facilities. Energy efficient air-to-air, geothermal and water-loop-system heat pumps are eligible for rebates which vary according to the technology type, cooling capacity, cooling efficiency, and category. The size of the rebate is based on British Thermal Units per Hour (Btu/h) cooling capacity, cooling efficiency and category, as defined by the program rules. Rebates on insulation, heat pumps, lighting upgrades, refrigerator recycling, and retro-commissioning are also available to eligible commercial customers. Rebates are only available to CWLP electric customers and will appear as credits on customers' electric bills. Contact CWLP for more program information.
