EDSS Exceptional Rebate Programs!!

Posted by Brandon M. on Aug 10, 2018 11:30:00 AM


What Are Rebates?

Government and public agencies offer cash-back programs to reduce the cost of your energy efficient products and help you achieve energy savings goals. These rebates can be as much as 75% of your cost in some locations. Rebate programs are first-come, first-served, and vary greatly by location and program administrator. EDSS researches these programs and opportunities in your area for eligibility and files all the paperwork for you.

Whether you’re planning to install energy efficient/renewable systems in your building or already have, EDSS will identify incentives for your project type and location. Get EDSS involved early to ensure rebate success and to manage pre-installation approvals that may be required

Types of Rebates

Rebates are offered in two forms--Prescriptive and Custom. Prescriptive Rebates are issued for pre-qualified products, whereas Custom Rebates evaluate overall energy savings.

  • Prescriptive Rebates:Awarded for common energy-saving measures, these incentives are set by specific requirements from the program administrator and are based on each installed unit.
    Rebate Example: ENERGY STAR-rated LED Downlight : $40/LED fixture
  • Custom Rebates:Newer technologies with undefined energy savings can still be eligible for rebates through an energy analysis. Often more lucrative than Prescriptive Rebates, Custom Rebates require a detailed description of energy conservation measures and their impact on overall energy usage. This usually requires an experienced company to perform an energy model to calculate the energy savings and negotiate with the utility provider.
