PNM provides a range of incentives for commercial customers to increase the efficiency of new and existing facilities. Buildings which exceed the current building code by 10% can get 8 cents per estimated first year kilowatt hours saved. Buildings which exceed the current building code by 20% can get 10 cents per estimated first year kilowatt hours saved. Buildings projects which utilize enhanced commissioning may also receive additional incentives.
In addition to these incentives, there are also pre-set menu options that allow a commercial customer to choose from a list of approved equipment with set rebate amounts. Eligible equipment includes energy efficient lighting, HVAC, refrigeration, and motors. The incentives vary based on the equipment. Customers may also receive incentives for custom efficiency measures not included in the prescriptive program. Custom incentives are worth $0.06 per estimated first year kilowatt hour (kWh) savings.
Small to medium sized businesses (maximum monthly peak demand of 100 kW per meter) can also enroll in a power saving program which allows for reduced- to no-cost energy efficient lighting and refrigeration retrofits, as well as incentives to remotely cycle off air conditioners during peak periods. Large commercial customers can participate in PNM's Peak Saver Program and receive incentives based on the amount of electricity managed by the PNM Peak Saver program.
