Business New Construction
Built to be energy efficient
There’s something thrilling about starting construction: the sense of possibility, the new opportunities, that certain glow of a worksite at dawn. Can you blame us for wanting to be a part of it? Of course not—and we make working with us worth your while by offering rebates and incentives for energy-efficiency equipment and building design.
In fact, it’s never too early to involve us in your construction project. When you bring us in during the design phase, we can help you achieve the most savings possible, including access to up to $50,000 more in rebates and incentives.
We can also help you renovate or build on to existing buildings, and with our experience we can help you find all kinds of energy savings you might not expect. Our rebate program is flexible, too. It includes custom rebates for even the most unusual projects, so you’re rewarded for your innovation.
HOW IT WORKS
This program is for commercial accounts that are building:
- New construction
- Adding on to existing facility
- Change of use or total gut rehab of existing facility
Non-residential members of participating electric cooperatives
Rebates are PER BUILDING, PER YEAR.
- $25,000 on the Prescriptive Track
- $50,000 on the Custom Track
- In some circumstances, we can add the two tracks together for up to $75,000
Talk to us before your plans are on paper. Often, we can help you and your contractors find a better solution at a lower cost and provide more rebate money and better long-term savings.
All rebates in this program are based on local energy codes
