IT PAYS TO BE GREEN

Improving energy efficiency at your business can reduce energy costs by up to 20% annually. Bottom line: decreasing energy spending increases profits.

Savings That Last

We’re with you today, tomorrow, and for years to come.

We recognize that getting "back to normal" may take a while, but we want to do our part to help you get there faster, which is why we’ve increased our energy efficiency incentives.
 
Through the end of 2020, we're offering higher incentives on measures intended to provide extra support to your business. While the higher incentive rates will end after December 31, 2020, the savings will last for years to come.

View Increased Incentives

We’re here to help you with all your energy needs, even when meeting in person isn’t an option. We’re now offering a Virtual Energy Review, where one of our qualified energy professionals will be able to remotely assess your energy needs and provide expert advice on improving energy efficiency at your facility.

Incentivized energy efficiency measures include: 

Upgrading to LEDs or other high-efficiency lighting can enhance the comfort, safety, productivity and visual appeal of your facility—in addition to significant long-term energy and maintenance cost savings.

Easy Upgrades

  • Replace fluorescent tubes with comparable LEDs or LED retrofit kits
  • Replace incandescent bulbs with comparable LEDs
  • Remove inefficient lighting entirely
