Bundle your upgrades to save more

Your incentive and energy savings increase when you choose to upgrade more than one measure category at once. Receive a bonus incentive by upgrading from gas to electric equipment.

How does it work?

A retail store wants to upgrade to new LED lighting. The original incentive for the store’s lighting upgrade is $5,570. When the owner decides to upgrade the HVAC system as well, the lighting incentive increases to $8,100.*

Our energy advisors will help you identify all upgrade and incentive opportunities during your free energy assessment.   

Get started today.

*Each measure category and bundle option has a set incentive rate per kWh. The project’s scope of work will determine the total incentive amount. Incentive funds are finite and first-come, first-served for qualifying projects.
