Commercial Rebates

Indoor Efficient Lighting:

Earn $0.10 per watt when you replace both ballasts and lamps, achieving a lighting load reduction of 1 kW or greater! (Tier 1)
Or, get $0.025 per watt when you replace lamps only, achieving a reduction of 1 kW or greater, for the maximum of a $100 rebate! (Tier 2)

Tier 1 Rebate Qualifications:

  • Only dedicated ballast and lamp systems are eligible
  • Ballasts must have total harmonic distortion levels of less than 20% as tested by Edison Testing Laboratories (ETL)
  • The customer and/or contractor must attest that the installations meet all required codes and standards.  FPU accepts no liability for the installations

Tier 2 Rebate Qualifications:

  • The customer must sign an agreement to maintain efficient lamps for a minimum of two years
  • Only lamps that are deemed likely to be in use at the time of FPU’s system peak will be eligible for this rebate

Additional Details:

  • Ineligible installations include reductions in lighting energy caused by fixture/lamp removal, operational changes, ‘add-on’ energy-saving devices and ballasts designed to operate multiple wattage lamp types
  • De-lamping installations will require that reflectors be incorporated unless high-output ballasts are used in the installations
  • All indoor lighting retrofits that are energy-efficient and reduce overall wattage will qualify

Call 888.220.9356 for more info!


Heating & Cooling Efficiency Upgrade:

Jumpstart your HVAC energy-savings with up to $100 cash back when you:

  • Replace your current system with a high-efficiency heat pump or air conditioning system
  • Install a new high-efficiency heat pump or air conditioning system

In order to be eligible for a rebate, the commercial customer must:

  • Replace existing equipment with—or install—a new heat pump (AHRI rating only) or central air conditioning system with a minimum rating of 14.0 SEER
  • Be the owner of the business, which must be located in FPU’s electric service area
  • Have a ducted HVAC system

Additional Details:

  • When installing a new heat pump, the maximum supplemental strip heating physically contained in the system shall not exceed 2 kW per nominal ton.  (On a system of less than 2.5 tons, a 5 kW heat strip will be allowed)
  • For a heat pump using supplemental strip heating, a two-stage indoor thermostat is required
  • The customer and/or contractor must attest that the heat pump or air conditioner installation meets all required codes and standards.  FPU accepts no liability for the installation
  • The business cannot have oil or electric resistance as its primary heat source when installing a straight cooling system
  • If the installation qualifies for multiple rebates, FPU will not honor rebates that result in a ‘double payment’ to a single customer. (This does not apply to federal or state tax credits/rebates)

Window Film Installation:

Install solar window film with a shading coefficient of 0.45 or less for $0.50 per square foot—or up to a $100 rebate!

Additional Details:

  • In order to be eligible, the customer must have an on-site inspection scheduled with FPU prior to installation

Call 888.220.9356 and schedule your on-site inspection to get started!

 

Chiller Upgrade:

Upgrade existing water-cooled centrifugal chillers, water-cooled scroll or screw chillers, and air-cooled electric chillers—and qualify for up to $100 per kW of additional savings above the minimum efficiency levels!

The minimum qualifications for efficiency are as follows:

Water-Cooled Centrifugal Chillers:

  1. Under 150 tons = 0.65 kW/ton with a 5.4 COP
  2. 150 – 300 tons = 0.60 kW/ton with a 5.9 COP
  3. Over 300 tons = 0.56 kW/ton with a 6.3 COP

Water-Cooled Scroll or Screw Chillers:

  1. Under 150 tons = 0.72 kW/ton with a 4.9 COP
  2. 150 – 300 tons = 0.66 kW/ton with a 5.3 COP
  3. Over 300 tons = 0.59 kW/ton with a 5.9 COP

Air-Cooled Electric Chillers (any size):

  1. Any size = 1.17 kW/ton with a 3.0 COP

Additional Details:

  • In order to be eligible, the customer must send a project proposal to FPU. An FPU Representative will then schedule an on-site inspection both before and after the installation

Call 888.220.9356 and schedule your on-site inspection to get started!
