Enhanced incentives for your Small Business

The Small Business Program (SBP) is being refreshed for 2020. In preparation, the last day to submit SBP applications for completed projects is December 1, 2019. After this date, projects can be submitted to the Business Incentive Program (BIP) utilizing BIP measures and rates. BIP incentives can be found in the blue table titled Business Incentives in the various catalogs. For further information visit the Business Incentive Program page.

We get it — you have a lot of things on your mind and energy efficiency probably isn’t one of them; however, energy-efficient equipment can do more than just save energy! It can:

  • Save you money
  • Improve the aesthetics of your building
  • Extend the life of your equipment
  • Increase employee productivity and comfort

Want to know how these opportunities translate into savings?

Check out our Small Business Savings Estimator Tool! This tool is designed to calculate energy and cost savings for a variety of lighting and refrigeration measures.
