The Prescriptive Commercial and Industrial Program offers incentives to electric customers for various efficient hvac measures, motors, fans, pumps, drives, water heaters, refrigeration measures, cooking equipment, lighting fixtures, systems and controls. Gas customers are also eligible for incentives on boilers, furnaces, programmable thermostats, and occupancy sensors. Applications must have complete information and be submitted with an invoice itemizing the new equipment purchased and the manufacturer specification sheets.

Purchased and installed equipment must not receive an incentive larger than $5,000. Customers must receive written approval before installation.

The Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Custom Program provides custom incentives to C&I customers for the installation of energy-efficient equipment and controls. The custom program allows measures and systems to be installed for situations unique to that customer's application or process. Incentives are offered on a per kW and kWh schedule, based on projected savings. Applicants must receive approval prior to beginning project. Complete form and attach invoice of all project costs.
