Pepco provides a range of rebates for prescriptive measures in existing and new facilities. Rebates help offset the costs of improvements to HVAC, chiller systems, lighting, lighting controls, building energy management systems, commercial cooking equipment, variable frequency drives, and custom measures. Custom measures may be utilized for projects which significantly reduce energy consumption but do not fit the scope of prescribed equipment upgrades. See all program equipment and participation requirements before purchasing and installation equipment.
Multifamily and New Construction projects are also eligible for incentives very similar to existing buildings. Multifamily properties making efficiency improvements to common areas are eligible for rebates identical to the existing buildings program, while in-unit upgrade projects offer slightly different rebates. View the program web site listed above for more information on these program differences. Additionally, incentives for new construction and major renovation projects are similar to existing building incentives; however a design-based rebate is also available to these facilities. These planned or renovated facilities must follow certain sustainable design and construction guidelines available on the program web site. View the program web site for additional details and program information.
Additionally, Retro-Commissioning and Operations/Maintenance Training is offered to eligible facilities and individuals. Each of these programs provides financial incentives for participating facilities and facility managers. Detailed information on each offering can be found on the program web site or in the appropriate DSIRE entry, where full details may be found. Contact Pepco for further information on these incentive offerings.
