Rocky Mountain Power's Energy FinAnswer program provides cash incentives to help its commercial and industrial customers improve the efficiency of their existing facilities and build new facilities that are significantly more efficient than code. New construction and retrofit projects for all industrial facilities can participate as well as all new commercial projects and commercial retrofits in facilities larger than 20,000 square feet.

Rocky Mountain Power will be involved from the beginning of construction, starting by reviewing the facility plans and identifying possible efficiency opportunities. Next, Rocky Mountain Power will prepare an energy analysis report consisting of specific recommendations and refined estimates of what each will cost and how much they'll save. It will also include an incentive offer and any commissioning requirements. Rocky Mountain Power pays for this study.

After an incentive agreement has been signed, purchase orders can be signed and construction can begin. Commissioning submittals and invoices that document the final costs of the energy efficiency measures with labor and material itemized must be delivered to the utility before the incentive payment is made.

In addition to business efficiency programs offered to Utah customers, Rocky Mountain Power also provides free expert building analysis of recommissioning possibilities. Customers with a summer peak demand of 300 kW or more, willing to make a $10,000 participation commitment, can apply for a Recommissioning Service Provider Analysis. Incentives are available to reduce the implementation costs of recommissioning measures if the simple payback is greater than one year. For more details, email
