Episode #10: Untapped Potential - Commercial Incentives
Most utilities have funds that are available for owners/developers to help offset the first cost premium of energy efficiency projects, while maximizing long-term operational savings. To encourage energy efficiency, governments, utilities and other organizations offer energy efficiency and other financial incentives to make energy efficiency more accessible for today’s homes and businesses.
Often these are not capitalized and are missed opportunities; especially for those projects already designing energy efficient buildings as a base standard; leaving tens of thousands of dollars on the table. JEC Energy Solutions help small municipalities, Independent School Districts (ISDs) and rural assets and other large commercial project owners capture these funds in markets that provide these financial incentives. In addition to energy conservation methods and systems, Carlos is helping to develop of solar lighting units for parks, pathways and street applications.
In this episode, we discuss the various opportunities and strategies design teams and owners can use to make efficiency projects work without breaking the bank.
