GWP is pleased to offer Business Energy Solutions (BES), a program offering incentives for medium and large businesses to complete pre-approved energy saving projects. Generally, medium and large businesses are defined as those having monthly electric bills of $3,000 or more. Remodeling and new construction projects can qualify as well.

Program Guidelines

  • Qualified customers can receive up to $50,000 in incentives per fiscal year.
  • Projects must be cost-effective from the customer's perspective based on the value of total estimated energy savings over the life of the installed measures.
  • Demand and energy savings attributable to projects must be documented by an energy engineer or through generally accepted industry practice or valuation model.
  • Incentive requests must be made on a BES Application.
  • GWP will have the final say on incentive approvals.
  • Incentives for approved retrofit projects are limited to 20% of eligible project cost or 100% of the incremental costs necessary to bring a remodeling and/or new construction project above the minimum Title 24 energy standard.
  • In no case will an incentive exceed the value saved energy over the life of the measures assuming $0.06 per kWh saved.
