Custom Incentive for Businesses (E)
The Bright Energy Solutions® Custom Incentive Program encourages business to think outside the box and come up with unique projects, process changes, or equipment that saves energy. If you have an energy-saving solution for your business that is not covered under any other Bright Energy Solutions program, you can apply for cash incentives by providing a detailed energy savings evaluation of the potential kilowatt (kW) and kilowatt-hour (kWh) savings of the project.
The more your project saves, the more your business can earn in rebate dollars. You show us the savings, we’ll show you the cash. All custom projects require pre-approval before purchase and installation.
