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.
