Duke Energy’s Smart $aver Incentive program offers rebates to non-residential customers to install energy efficient equipment in commercial/industrial facilities. All Duke Energy Ohio nonresidential electric customers are eligible, except those that have elected to opt out of the Energy Efficiency Rider. Rebates are available for a wide range of equipment including lighting, heating and cooling equipment, chillers and thermal storage units, pumps, VFDs, process equipment, and food service equipment. All equipment must meet certain energy efficiency standards defined on the program applications. To receive the rebates, customers should submit a completed application within 90 days after the equipment is installed and operational.
Custom applications for up to 50% of cost on any electricity saving device can be sent to CustomIncentives@duke-energy.com. Three levels of energy assessments are available for commercial customers: online, over the phone, and on-site visits by an energy professional providing a report with paybacks. The on-site visits require a fee which can be recouped within the Smart $aver Incentives program; to begin, customers can contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For customers who could not receive Smart $aver rebates for projects administered in the past 3 years, the Mercantile Self Direct Rebates are available. Demand response programs are also available, providing rewards and load curtailment via a dedicated web portal for each commercial customer.
