National Grid offers electric energy efficiency programs for large commercial and industrial customers.
New Construction: National Grid’s new construction program offers energy strategies, technical assistance and financial incentives to customers who are building new facilities, adding capacity for manufacturing, replacing failed equipment or undergoing major renovations. In addition to providing support – both technical and financial -- in the energy-efficient design of new buildings, financial incentives pay up to 75% of the incremental costs for the high efficiency materials and systems.
Existing Facility: National Grid’s program for existing buildings provides technical assistance and incentives to upgrade the performance of existing equipment and systems, Incentives are designed to pay, on average, approximately 40%-50% of the equipment and labor costs of installing new high-efficiency equipment. Incentives for custom projects provide up to 50% of the equipment and labor costs of installing new, high-efficiency equipment. View the program web site listed above for more details on incentive schedules.
