Incentive Source


TVA offers the Energy Right Solutions Program to commercial and industrial facilities. In addition to prescriptive rebates for lighting, motors, HVAC, and kitchen equipment, administrators take a custom baseline of pre-installation demand and compare to post installation measurements to determine the financial incentive amount in kilowatt-hour values. The incentives program is offered along with complimentary energy assessments and reviews to determine potential areas for savings. Customers can work with designers and installers to develop a project plan and complete a participation application form. Participants should receive a pre-installation incentive notification letter before removing any existing equipment.
