Liberty Utilities' program for existing commercial buildings provides incentives for energy efficient equipment installations. Incentives are available for HVAC equipment, variable frequency drives, motors, lighting, compressed air, chillers and custom measures. Additionally, small business incentives are designed to pay, on average, approximately 50% of the total project cost. Small business rebates are available for lighting, programmable thermostats, refrigeration, motors and economizers. Some equipment incentives vary based upon the size or efficiency of the equipment. Additionally, some incentives vary based upon whether a project is for new construction or retrofit applications. All equipment must meet program efficiency requirements in order to be eligible for rebates. Contact LIberty Utilities for additional information on this program and others.
