The New Construction Design Assistance Program works with prospective building owners, developers, design professionals, and construction contractors to deliver high performance buildings that capture synergistic energy savings by encouraging the design and construction of buildings as integrated efficient systems.
The Shared Savings Program allows the customer to receive energy savings in advance to undertake an energy efficiency project and then repay the funding in equal installments on their utility bill.
Energy Assessment Grants identify new ways to control energy costs at commercial or industrial facilities through energy assessment. Efficiency, engineering or other feasibility analyses performed by third-party contractors can provide a clear plan for implementing specific energy efficiency upgrades.
The RFP for Energy Efficiency allows customers to bid for funds to implement efficiency improvement projects, either on their own or in partnership with a third-party energy consultant or vendor. Within program guidelines, large power customers may overcome hurdles and make energy efficiency improvements an economical investment
For a customer to initiate an energy cost saving measure they must first be aware of the energy waste and then have an understanding of the behavioral changes or technology options that will help eliminate the waste.
Today’s electrical equipment is much more sensitive than the typical electrical devices of the past, therefore it’s possible to encounter power-related problems. Although many of these problems are the result of conditions inside the customers' facilities, customers and contractors continue to view power quality as a utility issue and continue to look to the utility for assistance in solving these problems.
