Help your business customers increase their system knowledge and earn rebates with our Compressed Air Efficiency program. The majority of the money a customer spends on a compressed air system is in the energy costs to run it. Studies have shown that during the lifetime of a compressed air system, over 75 percent of the cost to own and operate it is in electricity costs. It makes good economic sense to help customers maximize the efficiency of their systems.
All compressed air studies require preapproval and Xcel Energy recommends that all customers complete a study before performing any system upgrades. Studies should be done at least every five years; study funding is limited to one rebate per system every five years.
For customer purchases of No Air Loss Drains, or qualifying compressors, the rebates are prescriptive (pre-determined) and do not require preapproval. For almost any other compressed air system capital cost upgrade, customers may apply for rebate preapproval using the custom application.
We recommend that you start by providing a quote to your customer detailing the scope of your proposed work. Complete the Compressed Air Efficiency study application, and attach your customer quote.
Submit to the study application and quote to us for preapproval before beginning the study.
The study content must consist of the following:
We will respond within one week of receiving your completed study application to confirm study funding. After completing the study, your customer must submit a copy of the study report, an inventory of leak fixes, and your study invoice. The documents should be submitted to the customer’s Xcel Energy Account Representative, or to email@example.com.
