Summary

PNM is providing incentives for their commercial customers to design and build energy efficient new 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.
