Pepco's Retro-Commissioning for Existing Buildings Program offers incentives to commercial, industrial, governmental and institutional customers for optimizing energy performance in existing facilities. The program analyzes all major energy intensive systems within a building and seeks to improve the performance of these systems. The program is comprised of four phases: the Retro-Commissioning Plan Development Stage, the Detailed Investigative Stage, the Implementation Stage and the Continuing Commission Stage. Incentive levels vary from stage to stage as a customer progresses through the phases of the program, with all four stages providing a different incentive structure. See the program web site for more details on the application, implementation and incentive schedule.
The Operations and Maintenance Training Program provides a partial reimbursement incentive for the training and enrollment of facility operation personnel in pre-approved courses. Certification courses, focusing on energy conservation in buildings, are offered to eligible staff members. Only staff members who may influence the energy performance of the facility may participate. The completion of coursework, verified through documentation, is necessary in order to receive rebate. View the program web site for more information on this program.
