Rebate Incentive Caps for Commercial and Multifamily Projects

Relevant measure categories include: heating equipment, water heating equipment, building controls & distribution, commercial cooking equipment, and commercial building envelope upgrades.

  • Incentives will be capped at $25,000 for a project that includes eligible measures from only one measure category, and capped at $35,000 for projects including two measure categories. Projects that include three or more measure categories can earn up to $50,000.
  • Incentives across all projects are capped at $150,000 per customer per year.
