Small Business Programs

Small Business Program

The Small Business program is designed for business customers with an average monthly demand of less than 200 kW to help with the purchase of energy efficient equipment as part of a new construction or renovation project, a process expansion, replacement of equipment that has reached its end of useful life or to replace less efficient existing equipment.

Prescriptive Incentives

  • Chillers 
  • Compressed Air
  • HVAC 
  • Lighting
  • Motors
  • Variable Frequency Drive
  • Heating Equipment 

Custom Incentives

Less common installations, not included on the prescriptive applications may also qualify for incentives as Custom measures. Project cost and potential energy savings are quantified and evaluated through a benefit/cost model to determine eligibility for incentives..<

Availability of Funding

In general, incentives for retrofit projects cover up to 35% of the project cost (50% for lighting). New equipment and construction incentives cover up to 75% of the incremental cost for the most efficient options or buy down to a one year payback whichever is less. Pre-Approval is required prior to installation.

All incentives are subject to funding availability. Certain caps and restrictions apply. Once you receive an incentive approval, your incentive is fixed and the money is reserved for your project.

Free Energy Audits

Free audits are available to Small Business Customers to help you identify opportunities for improved energy efficiency.

Small Business Customers may complete installations using in-house staff or your own vendor/contractor. You may request additional assistance or schedule a free energy audit by calling 603-637-4346, sending an email to or visiting for more information. 

Program applications are processed on a first come first serve basis. Rebates are limited and available to qualifying applications until the program budget is depleted.
