Avista Utilities' customers can qualify for incentives through the Premium Efficiency Motors Program by developing a comprehensive motor inventory using the Department of Energy's free MotorMaster+ software program, and share the inventory list with Avista for incentive qualification. Alternately, customers may elect to apply for a rebate when purchasing new premium efficiency motors.
To qualify for a rebate, motors must meet or exceed the efficiencies shown on Avista's Rebate and Minimum Full Load Efficiency table. Avista Utilities offers rebates and incentives to their electric customers to help pay for qualifying premium motors. The rebate is distinguished from an incentive, in that a rebate does not require prior completion of an Energy Efficiency Agreement between Avista and the customer. However, the rebates are conservatively based on average motor loading and operating conditions. In some cases, particularly where motors are heavily loaded, the incentive will be higher than the rebate. This is because the incentive is calculated for each motor application. Where motors are lightly loaded, the rebate may actually be higher than the incentive.
