Public Service of New Hampshire (PSNH), in collaboration with nhsaves, encourages commercial and industrial customers building new facilities or renovating existing facilities to conserve energy through the New Construction and Equipment Program. The program offers prescriptive and custom rebates for a variety of equipment including lighting systems and controls, ECM motors, variable frequency drives, air conditioners, heat pumps, HVAC controls and air compressors. These prescriptive rebates vary widely depending on the equipment type and the size. Each equipment type has stated efficiency levels which must be met in order to qualify. Interested customers should visit the program web site for a full listing of rebate amounts and program requirements. Pre-approval of rebates by PSNH is required prior to the purchase and installation of the energy efficient equipment.

Custom incentives allow for facility-specific efficiency improvements not available through the prescriptive offering. Eligible retrofit projects may qualify for a rebate equal to the lesser of 75% of the total cost or buy down to one-year pay-back. Contact PSNH or view the program web site for more information on these incentives.
