Cooling Efficiency

Earn rebates and energy savings with a more efficient cooling system.

Our prescriptive cash rebates for qualifying, high-efficiency cooling equipment can cover a portion of the incremental costs incurred for purchasing high-efficiency equipment.

Earn fixed rebates for purchasing qualifying energy-efficient equipment, including:

Walgreens recently completed a project using our rebates to offset 60% of the total cost. Learn how they did it by reading the case study (PDF) and the Refrigeration rebate information sheet (PDF).

Cooling equipment upgrades that do not qualify for a prescriptive rebate may still qualify for a custom rebate. We require pre-approval, and eligible projects can earn up to $400/kW saved.

Examples of projects that have qualified for custom rebates include energy recovery, cooling towers and ground or air source heat pumps.
