to Summary by DSIRE
Black Hills Energy offers multiple programs for its Colorado commercial and industrial customers to save electricity in their facilities. The commercial prescriptive rebate program provides standardized predetermined rebates to commercial customers that install or upgrade energy efficient equipment recommended by an energy evaluation. Eligible incentives include HVAC, motors, lighting and new construction.
Black Hills Energy also offers the custom rebate program to commercial and industrial customers for projects that reduce energy usage. Eligible projects include chillers, unitary HVAC equipment, refrigeration, and other energy saving measures not covered under the commercial prescriptive rebate program. The program allows the utility to either buy down the upgrades to a two-year payback or pay up to one-half of the incremental cost of the equipment. Contact the utility for more information on the custom program.
