Save 16 percent on energy bills* and get a payback within one year.
Retrocommissioning (RCx) is the process of improving the performance and energy efficiency of building systems, equipment, and operations as a whole. The Focus on Energy RCx offering provides incentives to investigate and implement lower cost measures to improve the operation of existing equipment. RCx is designed for a variety of facilities including, but not limited to:
The program seeks out building owners and managers of existing buildings who are motivated to optimize existing equipment and controls. Eligible facilities are required to be five years or older and 50,000 ft2 or larger. Higher cost capital improvement projects identified during the RCx audit may be eligible for prescriptive or custom incentives outside the RCx Offering. The current RCx structure will be available to customers through June 30, 2020. A revised offering will be available on July 1, 2020.
Incentives for the implementation of qualified energy-saving measures follow a simple dollar per kWh or Therm installed methodology based on verified energy savings.
First Incentive Payment
50% of audit cost*
$0.03/ verified kWh
$0.40/ verified Therm
Second Incentive Payment
All incentives are not to exceed 75% of all RCx costs
*After the audit, a 1st payment is provided on good faith, with the understanding that implementation will occur. If energy savings aren’t achieved to the necessary level to justify the 1st payment, the appropriate portion will need to be refunded.
Maximum incentives are $300,000 per project and $400,000 per customer per calendar year.
