This program is designed for the hard to reach Small Commercial & Industrial market, serving customers with an average monthly demand of less than 110 kW. And it provided incentives of up to 60% of project costs for upgrades including energy efficient lighting, lighting controls and refrigeration measures. The program creates local green jobs, and provides much needed operating cost reductions for struggling small businesses – all while allowing National Grid to meet mandates for procurement of Energy Efficiency (EE) resources.
