Public Service of New Hampshire (PSNH), an electric utility, offers financial incentives and technical advice to small business customers seeking to improve energy efficiency through retrofits. PSNH's Small Business Retrofit Program, which is available to business customers with an average monthly demand less than 200 kilowatts (kW), tailors incentives for a variety of energy-efficiency measures. The program will cover up to 50% of labor and material costs for the following approved upgrades:
*Energy-efficient fluorescent ballasts, lamps and fixtures *Hard-wired and screw-in compact fluorescent systems *High-intensity discharge lighting systems *Occupancy sensors *Programmable thermostats *Electric hot water *Tank wraps *Motors *Cooler door heater controls *Walk-in cooler economizers
PSNH will provide eligible customers with a comprehensive energy analysis at no cost. This analysis will identify opportunities for enhancing the energy efficiency of your business. The utility will also assign interested small businesses an energy contractor who will provide a written proposal outlining recommended improvements. This proposal will include a detailed explanation of each improvement, a review of projected energy and cost savings, and the estimated return on investment. Custom rebates will also be considered and must meet the specifications of a cost/benefit analysis. These rebates will cover 35% of the installed cost, or the amount required to achieve a 1-year payback, whichever is less. The contractor will also explain the retrofitting process.
