to Summary by DSIRE
Duke Energy offers a variety of incentives through its “Smart $aver Incentive Program” for commercial and industrial customers installing energy efficient equipment in their facilities. Any of Duke Energy’s commercial or industrial customers not on the TT rate (Time-of-Day Rate for Service at Transmission Voltage) qualify for these prescriptive rebates. There are many eligible technologies, with varying rebate amounts, available for rebates, such as lighting equipment, cooling equipment, motors, pumps, food service equipment, and manufacturing process equipment. Incentives are paid on a "first-come, first-served" basis up to $50,000 per fiscal year (July 1 through June 30) per facility. Applications, found on the website above, should be completed and submitted within 90 days after equipment has been installed.
Schools (K-12) are also eligible under this program, however the application process is different and the incentive is capped at $100,000/school per fiscal year.
