In an effort to help small business owners reduce their energy costs and impact on the environment during this difficult time, Eversource has extended its offer of no-cost virtual energy assessments and enhanced incentives of up to 100 percent of the cost of common energy saving measures for small businesses. The new deadline is October 15.
Small retailers, professional offices, manufacturers, restaurants, independent grocers or any small business in Eversource service territory can call 1-844-887-1400 to learn more and request an energy assessment. If a customer has concerns about COVID-19 and doesn’t want a technician to visit their business at this time, they also have the option of a virtual assessment via phone or video call.
After the assessment, you will receive a report outlining energy saving opportunities, many that can be installed on the spot for instant savings. You will also receive information on rebates and incentives to offset costs of additional energy saving recommendations. If you participate in a virtual assessment, energy-saving products you can install yourself, such as LED lightbulbs or advanced power strips, will be mailed to you.
Upgrades eligible for the enhanced incentives include faucet aerators, spray valves, showerheads, pipe insulation, building envelope insulation/weatherization, HVAC air duct sealing, LED lamps and fixtures, lighting controls, Wi-Fi and programmable thermostats, variable speed drives as well as HVAC, plug load, refrigeration and vending machine controls.
The enhanced approach will be available through October 15, 2020 or while funding lasts.
