Summary:

Rocky Mountain Power offers a Self-Direction Credit program to its industrial and large commercial customers with annual electric usage of more than 5 million kWh or a peak load of 1,000 kW or more. Through this program, customers who pursue self-investments in energy efficiency and related demand-side management projects can receive credits of up to 80% of eligible costs. The credit is applied against 100% of the customer’s monthly Customer Efficiency Services charge on their electric bill, until the entire credit is used.

Project costs eligible for credit through this program may include equipment costs, engineering and consulting expenses and finance charges. For new construction or expansion of existing facilities, eligible expenses are those expenses that are additional to achieve energy efficiency levels that exceed standard industry practice. Expenses are subject to Self-Direction Credit program administrator approval. Participating customers will have to pay a non-refundable $500 administrative fee.

In addition to this and other business efficiency programs offered to Utah customers, Rocky Mountain Power also provides free expert building analysis of recommissioning possibilities. Customers with a summer peak demand of 300 kW or more, willing to make a $10,000 participation commitment, can apply for a Recommissioning Service Provider Analysis. Incentives are available to reduce the implementation costs of recommissioning measures if the simple payback is greater than one year. For more details, email recommissioning@rockymtnpower.net.
