Commercial and Industrial Energy Efficiency Program Overview
Equipment Incentives and Measures
- Blog Post
The Con Edison Commercial & Industrial (C&I) Energy Efficiency Program* offers cash incentives for installing energy-efficient electric and gas equipment and technologies. Energy efficiency can help improve your bottom line by reducing your energy use and maintenance costs while increasing your operating efficiency. These upgrades can also help protect the environment.
There are two pathways for both gas and electric customers: the prescriptive incentive path and the custom incentive path. The application process is simple. To get started, complete a short application, and speak with one of our dedicated Energy Advisors with any questions about your energy-efficiency project. Once the project is approved and completed, the incentive is mailed to the customer, or directly to the Market Partner, with customer approval.

1) Prescriptive Incentives
The Equipment Rebate program offers cash for the installation of standard energy-efficient equipment, including:
- HVAC, Furnace, Boiler and Chillers
- Lighting and Lighting Controls
- Non-Lighting Custom
2) Performance-Based Incentives for Other Measures (custom incentives)
Other energy efficiency upgrades not listed above (excluding lighting) may be eligible for performance-based Custom incentives at the rate of $0.16 per kWh and $600 per kW for electric and $2 per therm for gas, with payment based on estimated kWh and therm savings. Incentives are paid up to 50% of the customer’s project cost for eligible measure(s). Internal Labor costs will not be included with total project cost when calculating incentive caps. Total project incentives cannot exceed $1,000,000 for custom electric and $250,000 for custom gas. Material and Labor costs must be submitted to Con Edison for review and may be capped for incentive calculations at our sole discretion. Final custom measure eligibility, savings and incentives are determined at the sole discretion of Con Edison.
