The Data Center Program is targeted to data centers with IT server loads greater than 350 kW or IT cooling loads greater than 100 tons. This program provides unique opportunities for energy-efficiency projects that may not otherwise fit into our standard rebate and customer assistance offerings.
What Types of Projects Qualify?
Energy efficiency projects that decrease electrical usage at a data center facility in SVP service territory may qualify. Retrofits to existing data centers that reduce fan energy usage or increase the efficiency of the cooling system may be eligible for rebate. New data centers with an energy efficient design as compared to a typical data center may also be eligible for rebate. Contact an SVP energy engineer to determine project eligibility. Whether or not a particular project will be approved for a rebate is up to the sole discretion of SVP.
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 rebate. All energy-efficiency projects are subject to SVP approval.
