The Customer Directed Rebate Program provides unique opportunities for energy-efficiency projects that may not otherwise fit into our standard rebate and customer assistance offerings. Now more than ever, customers have the opportunity to capitalize on a broader selection of energy-saving projects.
What Types of Projects Qualify?
Energy efficiency related projects that decrease electrical usage at a facility located in SVP service territory may qualify. Examples of systems that may be eligible for a rebate include: chilled water plants, air compressors, fan or pump systems and unique processes. Please contact an SVP energy engineer to determine if your proposed project is eligible.
What Types of Projects are Ineligible?
Ineligible projects include self-generation, cogeneration and fuel switching projects, or those installed and completed before application pre-approval. Projects involving equipment not permanently installed or easily removed may also be ineligible for a Customer Directed Rebate. All energy-efficiency projects are subjected to SVP approval.
- Incentives are limited to 65 percent of the project's cost
- Maximum customer incentive per year and per project is $500,000
Here are the forms you'll need:
