Do you have a project or system upgrade in mind for your facility that you think will save energy, and need a better understanding of your options and potential costs? A Feasibility Study can quantify the technical viability, potential energy savings, and overall project economics.
This program is ideal for industrial, commercial, or agricultural facilities that rely on technologies such as the following:
- Compressed air
- Pumps, fans, and blowers
- Variable speed drives
- Steam and water boiler systems
- Waste heat recovery
- Other process equipment
We offer financial incentives of 50% of the study cost, up to a maximum incentive of $20,000.
A third-party consultant of your choice will conduct a comprehensive study of your potential project, which will quantify the costs, benefits, and savings associated with the project. If you decide to move forward with the project, you can use the information from the study to apply for incentives through our Custom Energy Solutions Program for your energy efficiency upgrades.
Only studies that evaluate electricity and natural gas savings will be considered.
See our Feasibility Study Guide for more information.
