Earn rebates to power your facilities with less energy

Electricity is essential to operating your commercial space. We're committed to helping you power your buildings more efficiently. When you install high-efficiency equipment in your building, you're using less energy to get the same job done - which can result in a lower power bill, a positive environmental impact and increased sustainability. Energy-efficient upgrades are smart investments than can lead to long-term savings. Our Commercial Energy Efficiency Program offers rebates to help offset the cost of high-efficiency equipment installation for your existing building, new construction and major renovation projects.
