Large Industry

Does your facility qualify for a large industry incentive?

Large industries have a rate schedule of 750 kW or more of contracted demand. If you are a customer with an average of 2,000 kW or more of demand, you may be eligible for Energy Management Information System (EMIS) incentives.

Large industry customer can get up to $20,000 to assess energy efficiency upgrades, up to $300,000 in incentives for implemented measures, and, if eligible, up to $150,000 in incentives for EMIS.

Assessment options

If you don’t know where to start with energy efficiency upgrades, an energy audit will help identify areas for improvement and key opportunities in your operations. If you have a project already in mind, consider starting with a feasibility study to help ensure the retrofit is cost-effective.
