NOTE: The Large Commercial & Industrial Business Program is fully subscribed at this time.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, Commercial buildings account for 36 percent of all U.S. electricity consumption and cost more than $190 billion in energy every year.
Saving energy through our Energy Solutions programs can have several benefits for large commercial and industrial customers.
The following cash incentives are provided for eligible measures in renovation, new construction, and maintenance projects resulting in reduced energy:
|Commercial Business Incentive Table||Measure Category||Cash Incentive|
|Lighting and lighting controls*||$0.07/kWh|
|HVAC - chiller||$0.12/kWh|
|HVAC - DX and HVAC controls||$0.12/kWh|
*Includes both interior and exterior applications
The no cost program provides technical assistance, public recognition, and financial incentives for projects that improve energy efficiency of commercial facilities and result in energy reduction. Incentives are capped at $50,000 per customer.
Let's look at a couple of hypothetical projects.
Car dealerships depend on exterior lighting to showcase the cars they sell. A participating contractor explained the difference in efficiency between metal halide fixtures and LED fixtures to a car dealer. With incentives available from Mississippi Power, the dealer is able to move forward with the exterior lighting retrofit.
Energy efficiency can result in long term savings over a short period of time. A building manager wanted to consider retrofitting his multi-story parking garage with better lighting to increase safety for customers. After talking to a Mississippi Power participating contractor and receiving a no charge evaluation, the manager decided to proceed with the retrofit.
There is no cost to find out if you have hidden savings.
