The NSTAR Small Business Solutions Program offers incentives for business customers whose average monthly demand is 300 kW or less. The first step of the program is a free energy audit to identify potential energy saving opportunities. A list of companies that perform the free energy audits is listed on the program website. Eligible energy measures include upgrades to energy efficient lighting fixtures, electronic controls, HVAC and refrigeration, and mechanical systems. Interested customers should contact NSTAR for more information.
