New Construction Design Assistance
The New Construction Design Assistance Program works with prospective building owners and developers, design professionals, and construction contractors to deliver high performance buildings that provide improved energy efficiency, peak load reduction, improved systems performance, and greater comfort.
Energy savings will be accomplished by simulating incremental improvements of efficiency in lighting, HVAC, and other building systems. The program seeks to capture synergistic energy savings by encouraging the design and construction of buildings as integrated systems. New Construction Design Assistance Brochure

Shared Savings Program
Energy efficiency can offer big returns for businesses. It lowers utility bills, heightens performance and productivity, and shows a commitment to greener alternatives that your customers and community will appreciate.
We’re giving businesses the upfront capital needed to make qualifying energy-efficiency improvements - up to $50,000 worth. Repayments are made in regular installments on your company’s monthly utility bill. And because your repayment plan is based entirely on the money those energy-efficient improvements will save, your utility bill should stay almost the same.
Contact us today for more information. We’ll help you identify eligible electrical projects, choose the right project for your energy-saving goals and collect the information you’ll need to complete the Shared Savings application process.
