Alameda Power and Telecom offers financial incentives for its commercial customers to install a range of energy efficient equipment and measures. HVAC rebates include efficient variable frequency drives, air conditioners and heat pumps. Custom rebates based on kWh savings are available for motors, lighting, HVAC, refrigeration, and computer systems.  Higher per kWh rebates are offered for equipment qualifying as "advanced technology."  

To qualify for incentives, customers must first fill out the application forms available on the program web site, and schedule a pre-installation inspection. Alameda Power and Telecom will then award the rebate once they receive the proofs of purchase and conduct a post-installation inspection. The incentives vary according to the type and efficiency of the equipment installed, and the type and efficiency of the equipment being replaced. Full details and rebate schedule are available on the application forms.  For more information visit the program web site or contact the utility directly.
