The United Illuminating Company (UI) Energy Conscious Blueprint Program provides design grants and implementation grants to assist designers, project owners and architects of commercial or industrial buildings with the additional cost of modeling, analysis, actual design and implementation of energy-efficient buildings. Customers with commercial, industrial, and governmental new construction, additions, or major renovation projects are eligible to participate. UI offers a wide variety of structured and custom options and works closely with the customer throughout all stages of the project. Incentives may be based on a dollar amount per square foot or on the percentage by which the building exceeds the energy efficiency code.

In addition, the Energy Conscious Blueprint Program offers rebates for new construction, major renovation and equipment replacement to increase the electric energy efficiency of non-residential new construction and major renovation projects. The rebates are customized to the individual project and will vary likewise.
