to Summary by DSIRE
Austin Energy offers incentives for the construction and major renovation of commercial buildings within its service territory. The program rewards customers by using a tiered payment format, which provides incentives to customers for using efficient measures and techniques throughout the entire construction process. Tier 1 payments are based upon assessments of the planning and design phases of construction. Tier 2 payments are based upon conditions after the project receives building permits but before receiving the certificate of occupancy. Tier 3 rebates are awarded based upon conditions after the certificate of occupancy has been issued. These incentives levels are based upon the percentage of rebates for which the customer qualifies under Austin Energy's commercial rebate program. Contact Austin Energy for more information on this program.
