Over its 20 year existence, ESCO has developed strong relationships with utilities across the country. ESCO has been selected to be a participant in numerous utility marketing programs to promote energy efficiency initiatives with commercial customers. These programs are designed to utilize rebates to enhance the financial proposition and thus provide added impetus to undertake energy efficiency projects. As Federal and State mandates to reduce energy consumption have become more prevalent, utility rebate programs have become more generous and widespread. ESCO keeps abreast of the utility rebate landscape throughout the country and therefore is able to proactively inform its clients as rebate programs change. This ensures that ESCO’s clients receive the maximum rebates and are able to secure them as the pool of available rebate funds is finite.
Utility rebates have become a pivotal part of the energy efficiency project decision process. As previously indicated, lighting upgrade projects and other energy efficiency measures are frequently subsidized to varying degrees by virtually all utility companies and can often reduce the final cost of a project by 30% to 100%.
ESCO handles all of the calculations, paperwork and approvals, inclusive of utility pre and post inspections as the rebate process can be cumbersome and complicated. ESCO’s engineered designs ensure that optimum energy saving solutions are realized with maximum rebates achieved.
ESCO is so confident in its ability to accurately calculate and secure rebates for a project that it will accept the assignment of utility rebates in lieu of payment from the client for that amount of the project. Over the years, ESCO has secured millions of dollars in rebates and incentives for its clients.
