Note: EnergySmart rebates for the 2014 calendar year have been fully subscribed. EnergySmart rebates will be available again beginning in January 2015.

EnergySmart services are available to all businesses within Boulder County.

EnergySmart offers a full suite of energy efficiency services. EnergySmart helps businesses (and homeowners) identify and implement energy efficiency improvements. The “One Stop Shop” aims to reduce the hassles and hurdles associated with improving the energy efficiency and comfort of a home or business by providing an expert Energy Advisor to each participant. The Advisor assists with scheduling an energy assessment, reviewing contractor bids, and identifying and applying for all applicable incentives.

EnergySmart also provides rebates to commercial building owners and businesses for a wide variety of energy efficient technologies. Solar photovoltaic (PV) and other renewable energy measures may also be eligible for rebates.

The total of all incentives (i.e., EnergySmart rebates, utility rebates, grants, and other available incentives) will be limited to 50-70% of project cost of eligible measures, depending on the type of technology. HVAC projects are also capped at $7,500, whichever limit occurs first. A $10,000 rebate limit will be applied to renewable energy projects, and demonstrated energy efficiency performance or improvements are required first.

Rebates are first-come, first-served. Call an Energy Advisor at 303-441-1300 for more information on eligibility and the current availability of funds.
