PSNH's Energy Rewards Program offers incentives on a competitive basis to our commercial and industrial customers who achieve measurable energy savings through the installation of energy efficiency measures.
Under this program, PSNH accepts proposals from any qualified party for electrical energy efficiency projects to be implemented at the facilities of commercial and industrial PSNH customers with a demand of 350 kW or more.
Each proposal must identify the incentive amount required from PSNH to go through with the project. Proposals will be evaluated based upon a comparison of energy savings and other price and non price variables. Non price variables include factors such as whether the project includes items other than lighting, and whether the environmental impacts reduce on-site emissions or waste stream. Using these criteria, winning proposals will be selected for the energy rewards.
PSNH commercial and industrial customers, energy service companies, and other third party service providers representing commercial and industrial customers are eligible to participate. The minimum project energy savings for this program is 100,000 kWh per year (may be aggregated across multiple sites), and the minimum total project cost is $150,000.
Eligible measures include replacing standard fluorescent lighting with high efficiency fluorescent lighting, installing variable speed drives on motors, installing lighting controls to reduce lighting operating hours, and replacing low efficiency air conditioning equipment with high efficiency equipment.
Measures that are not eligible include new construction projects, any power-producing project such as co-generation, fuel switching (switching from electric energy), and any repair or maintenance project.
Proposals are accepted in two tracks
Project Track: Seeks proposals that can be developed in a short period of time and yet still have sufficient detail to accurately estimate energy savings, project costs, and other parameters.
Study Track: Seeks proposals for projects that appear to have sufficient energy savings, but need additional study due to complexity, engineering study costs, or other reasons.
