Retrocommissioning typically saves 16 percent on energy bills* and produces a payback within one year.
Retrocommissioning (RCx) is the process of improving the performance and energy efficiency of building systems, equipment, and operations as a whole. The Focus on Energy RCx Offering provides incentives to investigate and implement lower cost measures to improve the operation of existing equipment.
The RCx Program is designed for a variety of facilities including, but not limited to:
The program seeks out building owners and managers of existing buildings who are motivated to optimize existing equipment and controls. Eligible facilities are required to be five years or older and 50,000 ft2 or larger.
Higher cost capital improvement projects identified during the RCx audit may be eligible for prescriptive or custom incentives outside the RCx Offering.
