Progress Energy Florida offers an incentive to its business customers for building envelope improvements including ceiling insulation, window film, and a variety of products and approaches meant to reduce the amount of heat transferred to and from a building through the roof. Rebates are provided to customers who install either cool roof materials, roof insulation, or green roofs. The rebates can be applied to both retrofits and new construction projects. Upon request, Progress Energy Florida will provide a free Business Energy Check to determine if the facility is eligible for the incentive. Eligible facilities will earn a per-square-foot incentive based on the type of material used. Additional restrictions apply. Interested customers should view the program brochures for more details.
