Focus on Energy offers financial incentives to eligible business customers to retro-commission buildings to optimize performance. The program provides incentives for building efficiency studies based on the size of the facility and the number of recommended measures installed. Incentive levels for installed measures are $0.08 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) or $0.5/therm. The incentive is distributed in 2 separate payments; the first payment is distributed after measures have been installed, and the second payment is distributed after a site visit 90 days after the installations are verified.
To obtain incentives, interested applicants must work with a Retro-Commissioning Service Provider adviser to complete the initial study. Please note that customer eligibility for Focus on Energy incentives is based on utility participation; interested individuals and companies should use the eligibility tool on the program web site to determine if their local utility participates in the Focus on Energy program.
