Custom rebates are available for retrofit projects that do not qualify for standard rebates and retrocommissioning projects.
While retrofitting involves replacing outdated equipment, retrocommissioning focuses on improving the efficiency of what is already in place. Qualifying retrocommissioning projects include replacements such as controls or modifications to air conditioning systems which result in verifiable electric and/or natural gas savings.
