Summary: Tampa Electric offers a variety of incentives for commercial and industrial customers to increase the efficiency of eligible facilities. Tampa Electric also offers a free energy audit to non-residential customers to help businesses to use energy more efficiently. Rebates are offered for energy efficient chillers, lighting, lighting occupancy sensors, air conditioners, duct inspections/repair, solar window film, ceiling and wall insulation upgrades, motors, refrigeration equipment, heat recovery systems, and heat pump water heaters. A customer with a standby generator can receive an increased incentive of $4 per kilowatt for utilization of a emergency generation capacity during peak periods.
All equipment must meet specific energy efficiency standards listed on the program web site. Tampa Electric also offers the Conservation Value Program, which provides incentives for custom projects that do not qualify for any of the rebates listed above, but that do have a significant energy savings.
