New Construction and Custom Projects


Including energy efficiency and carbon reduction goals into your business has a direct impact on your bottom line and can improve comfort and safety for your employees and customers.

We offer incentives for cost-effective custom projects for new construction and retrofits that fall outside of our standard rebate programs, and standard rebates for qualifying electrically heated new construction multi-family housing projects. In addition, we offer low-interest loans to help finance your energy project. Custom incentives are based on verified electric energy savings and are subject to a cost cap. Current custom incentive rate is lessor of $0.18 per kWh saved or up to 70% of project cost.
