Projects must involve a facility improvement that results in a permanent reduction in electrical energy usage (kWh). Any measures installed at a facility must be sustainable and provide 100 percent of the energy benefits as stated in the application for the life of the product. Projects must result in a simple payback period between one and seven years. Projects involving new construction or major renovation must be reviewed by the City's Energy Efficiency Consultant before final construction drawings are issued. Projects must meet all code requirements, lighting projects must be Design Lights Consortium certified and equipment must be purchased, installed and operating prior to incentive payment. Preference will be given to projects that might not have been performed absent the incentive funding.
Pre-approval applications for proposed Large-BusinessWISE projects will be accepted year-round until funds are exhausted. Large-BusinessWISE projects should complete the PRE-APPROVAL APPLICATION and submit the application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
