Incentive Size and Funding SourceIncentives are provided on the custom application of commercially available technology. Each project will be unique based on the applicant's needs and site-specific process. Energy savings incentives are based on one full year of energy savings. For productivity improvements, the energy savings will be calculated by determining energy use per unit of production or workload before and after the improvement, and multiplying the difference by the new output. The maximum incentive is 50% of project cost, up to $5 million per facility per year (electric) or $1 million per facility per year (gas). There is also a minimum incentive size of $30,000. Incentives are pro-rated for customers that pay the SBC on less than 50% of their usage. The program is funded through the Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard (EEPS) and System Benefits Charge (SBC). The program budgets are $26.8 million for gas and $94.4 million for electric. Incentives are as follows:
  • Electric Efficiency: $0.12/kWh (upstate) or $0.16/kWh (downstate).
  • Gas Efficiency: $15/MMBtu (upstate) or $20/MMBtu (downstate).
  • Operational Changes: $.05/kWh (electric) and $6/MMBTU (gas).
Eligible RecipientManufacturers and data centers implementing energy efficiency and process improvements that reduce energy costs.
