The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) offers The Fast Cash Incentive for Small Business and Industry through local power distributors in partnership with TVA. To receive these prescriptive HVAC and lighting incentives, customers should contact their local power company and complete the incentive application. Some projects may be selected for pre and post measurement review of the energy efficiency improvements. Participants should be able to provide receipts and/or invoices that list the equipment manufacturer, equipment model numbers, AHRI certified SEER/EER and cooling capacity (Btu/H), fixture type, number/wattage of lamps per fixture, and quantity for each model installed.
