Commercial & Industrial Incentives

  • Businesses,

Running a successful business takes a lot of effort – and we believe energy costs shouldn’t be one of your worries. That’s why BWL is making it easier and more affordable for business customers to make energy-saving improvements – with valuable rebates from Hometown Energy Savers®! New construction projects may also be eligible.

Energy Savings Incentives

Incentives are available for the purchase and installation of almost any type of efficient electrical equipment you rely on to keep your business running.

Prescriptive incentives are available for quick and easy projects including lighting, HVAC, and refrigeration. Prescriptive measures are a “one-for-one” incentive for installing high efficiency equipment with pre-defined rebate amounts upfront. Specifications for eligible equipment are identified in the application.

Custom incentives are available for larger, complex projects requiring a tailored solution. This allows for incentives that may not fit into the standard prescriptive measures and better meets the needs of business specific operations. Incentives are based on the annual electric energy savings.

New in 2022! Pre-approval is no longer required for all commercial projects. Small Business customers are waived from pre-approval. You will only need pre-approval for projects that include:

  • Custom measures
  • Prescriptive incentives totaling more than $5,000
  • Select HVAC measures
  • All new construction or major renovation projects that have two or more major system replacements (HVAC, lighting, building envelope, controls)

Get Started

Determine if pre-approval is necessary and then complete the application that corresponds to your project. Fillable PDF applications are now available. Online applications will be available soon.

For projects that were completed in 2021, fill out the PDF application. Online applications are no longer available for 2021 projects. Send completed applications to instead of the address shown on the 2021 PDF application.

Once you’re pre-approved and/or your project is complete, it’s time to request your incentive. Within 30 days of project completion, you must submit the following documents:

  • Pre-approval letter (if project needed pre-approval)
  • Complete application
  • Itemized invoices
  • Product specification sheets
