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) Equipment Rebate Program
The Equipment Rebate program offers cash for the installation of standard energy-efficient equipment, including:
- Lighting and Lighting Controls
- HVAC, Furnace, Boiler and Chillers
- Motors and VFDs
- Commercial Kitchen
- Non-Lighting Custom
2) Performance-Based Incentives for Other Measures
Other non-lighting energy efficiency upgrades not listed above may be eligible for performance-based Custom incentives at the rate of $0.16 per kWh and $2 per therm, 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. In addition to required documentation listed above, all custom projects must submit the following information:
- List of all proposed measures with related technical specifications and estimated savings
- A spreadsheet with all equations, parameters and assumption values used to calculate savings
- Must list source of values
- All other applicable data and supporting documentation used to calculate savings and/or assumptions
- Any other documentation requested by Con Edison for calculation savings
