Emerald People's Utility District (EPUD) offers financial incentives for commercial customers to increase the energy efficiency of their facilities. EPUD works with the Bonneville Power Administration to deliver energy conservation incentives to customer-owners in all non-residential sectors – agriculture, industrial, and commercial. Eligible equipment includes commercial appliances, cooking equipment, grocery and refrigeration equipment, lighting measures, controls, and custom projects. Some prescriptive rebates vary based upon the capacity and efficiency of the new equipment.

EPUD and affiliated regional trade allies will visit facilities applying for custom rebates and make recommendations for equipment/process improvements, conduct economic analyses, and offer financial assistance. Past projects have included adjustable speed drives on boilers, air compressor control upgrades, and refrigeration system upgrades. Contact EPUD or visit the program web site for more information on this program.
