National Grid’s commercial efficiency program offers energy strategies, technical assistance and financial incentives to electric 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 70% of the incremental costs for the high efficiency materials and systems or buy down the incremental investment to a 1.5 year simple payback. These projects may include custom HVAC, controls, pumping systems, weatherization, solar thermal systems and many other technologies. Prescriptive rebates are available on chillers, air compressors, motors, variable frequency drives, lighting, and controls. Some rebates vary by capacity, building size or efficiency.
Contact program administrator to insure pre-approval for the rebates, then install the qualifying equipment within 12 months. National Grid also offers gas incentives as well as a range of related services that complement energy efficiency programs and assist large commercial customers with identifying and installing energy efficient technologies.
