Description

The Con Edison C&I Energy Efficiency Program offers incentives for installing energy efficient electric and gas equipment and technologies.

Eligibility

Commercial Customers (excluding multifamily buildings), with over 100 kW average peak demand on a rolling 12-month basis, who pay into the EE Tracker are eligible for C&I incentives. For gas projects, all customers with Firm gas heating accounts and interruptible accounts are eligible.

Incentives are available to property owner/lease holder for the purchase and installation of energy efficiency measures at the location where the qualifying project will be installed.

 Customers who have received the financial incentives or rebates from NYSERDA and/or another electric or gas utility are ineligible for the program.

How the Program Works

There are two pathways for participating gas and electric customers: the prescriptive path and the custom path. The amount of incentive is dependent on the existing equipment and the type(s) of energy efficiency equipment installed, and is calculated by Con Edison. Incentives cannot exceed 70% of the customer’s project cost for eligible measures or 100% of each measure cost, and total incentives are capped at $1,000,000 for electric projects and $750,000 for gas projects.

To get started, customers must submit an application detailing the scope of the work to be done, the existing equipment at the site, and the new equipment or technology to be installed. Con Edison will then inspect the existing condition of the site. Once the customer receives a Notice to Proceed from Con Edison, which will also include an incentive offer for the new equipment, the project work may begin. The customer then has 90 days to complete the installations and to submit completion paperwork to Con Edison. Lastly, Con Edison will conduct a post-installation inspection and mail an incentive check to the participating customer.
