New Hampshire Electric Co-Op offers incentives to its commercial and industrial customers to encourage energy efficiency. The program targets any commercial/industrial member building a new facility, undergoing a major renovation, or replacing failed (end-of-life) equipment. The program offers prescriptive and custom rebates designed to cover the lesser of a one year payback, or 75% of incremental difference in the cost of purchasing standard equipment compared to purchasing an energy efficient equivalent, up to the member's incentive cap. Rebates are available for energy-efficient lighting and controls, energy-efficient motors, variable frequency drives (VFDs), HVAC equipment and controls, chillers, and approved custom projects. Rebates specific to schools are available for lighting and lighting controls.
