Rebate Incentive Caps for Commercial and Multifamily Projects
To encourage program participants to submit comprehensive rebate applications for commercial and multifamily projects, we offer higher rebate incentive caps for projects that incorporate eligible equipment and other improvements from multiple measure categories.
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.
