Benefits

  • Increase your sales of energy-saving equipment for commercial refrigerators and freezers
  • Provide added value to your customers with rebates and energy savings
  • Your customers’ refrigeration improvements can lower their energy costs and maximize operation of equipment, reducing the likelihood of failures or costly repairs
  • Rebates offset customers’ costs for higher-efficiency refrigeration upgrades, making them more affordable

Become a Qualified Commercial Refrigeration Trade Partner

Participating Commercial Refrigeration Efficiency Trade Partners can receive benefits including, but not limited to: ongoing training with both custom and prescriptive rebate applications, interpretation of specific refrigeration projects or refrigeration technologies with available program rebates, and assistance from Franklin Energy with completing and submitting all rebate paperwork to Xcel Energy in an efficient manner.

Participating Commercial Refrigeration Efficiency Trade Partners are eligible to participate in the Trade Partner of the Week (TPOW) process. The TPOW process is a way for Franklin Energy to put refrigeration customers—who are not already working with contractors—in contact with a participating Commercial Refrigeration Efficiency Trade Partner. The TPOW process helps customers move ahead with their energy-efficient refrigeration projects—and it provides Commercial Refrigeration Efficiency Trade Partners with project leads they may not encounter otherwise.

To apply, complete and submit the Trade Partner Application found at the bottom of this section.
