The E+ Business Partners Program offers funding for local energy conservation and load management projects in new and retrofit applications including commercial, institutional, industrial, agricultural, and multi-family residential facilities/systems. It is not available for businesses already enrolled in the electric “Choice” programs.

NWE will examine the level of funding or advisory services it will invest in specific conservation or load management measures based on the life expectancy, reliability, and availability of the conservation resource, cost to NWE of administering the project, level of design assistance funding already attained, the projected payback to the entity owner, funding available from other sources, the value to the distribution system, and the renewable resource available.

Projects must demonstrate the cost-effectiveness of specific conservation and/or load management measures. These projects must also assure reliability and availability of equipment, while demonstrating the availability of qualified design services, contractors, and maintenance services. The deadline for proposals under this Request for Proposals (RFP) is December 31, 2011 and could be extended. Customers should call their Regulatory Support Services department at 1-888-700-6878 more information.
