What are the Program Benefits?

Program benefits include providing customers with access to resources such as consultative energy services, as well as financial incentives for projects that improve the electric energy efficiency of their facilities. There is no cost or obligation to participate in the program.

What are the Incentive Amounts?

Prescriptive incentives are paid a standard rate for qualifying one-for-one change outs. If your project is not included on the Prescriptive List, it will be considered a custom project. Custom incentives are paid an incentive rate based on the projected energy savings and building size. Total incentives per facility per program year cannot exceed $50,000 for lighting and $50,000 for non-lighting up to the total cost of the upgrade, whichever is less.
Contact us at 504-229-6868 to determine if pre-approval is required before you start your project.

Incentives are available for the following energy efficiency upgrades: 

  • Energy efficient lighting upgrades.

  • Electric chillers.
  • Premium efficiency motors.
  • Window film.
  • Any other measure that results in a measurable electric usage reduction.
