We Energies Prescriptive Incentive Program offers cash rebates for the purchase of energy efficient technologies that will replace older, less efficient technologies. Eligible projects include new compressed air measures, HVAC, lighting, energy recovery ventilators (ERV), and motors. With the exception of ERV installations, all equipment eligible for a prescriptive rebate must be replacing older, less efficient equipment on a one-to-one basis. Applicants must submit rebate applications within 30 days of their project's completion to qualify for the rebates. Projects that do not match the technologies identified in the Prescriptive Incentive Program or are not one-for-one replacements are encouraged to consider the Custom Incentive Program. Additional program guidelines apply, please carefully read the terms listed on the rebate applications to ensure eligibility.

The Focus on Energy program, in conjunction with We Energies, also provides incentives through the Commercial and Industrial New Construction program. Financial incentives and technical assistance are available to impact design with the goal of achieving a 20-30 % greater building energy efficiency over that of standard building practices. For more information regarding this program, visit the program website.

In addition to equipment rebates, We Energies will also contribute money to buy-down the cost of chiller, natural gas burner/boiler, and steam trap maintenance. This incentive is capped at $2,000 per system, or $40,000 per project. We Energies will also provide up to $20,000 for compressed air system audits and leak surveys.
