Custom Incentive Program

Cash incentives are available to customers planning unique equipment and system upgrades and industrial process improvements. If you have energy-saving improvements planned that are not available through other incentive programs offered, you may be eligible for custom incentives. Projects may include:
  • Energy Management Systems (EMS) / Building Automation Systems (BAS)
  • Compressed Air System Improvements
  • Industrial Process Improvements

A distinguishing feature of the Custom Projects incentive is the primary focus on entire projects rather than on individual measures. With custom projects savings are individually calculated for each energy-efficiency measure (EEM) and then added to obtain the total savings for the project. Adjustments are made for interactions among measures that would increase or decrease net savings.

Custom incentives cover up to 50% of the project installed costs, capped at $0.28 per estimated kWh per year saved and no less than 1.5 year pay back.

Note: If you are planning a Lighting Fixtures & Controls, Chillers, or Variable Frequency Drives project, please use these links to learn more about applying for both standard and custom using a single application.

The program is not accepting applications at this time. Review the most current Program Update for additional details.
