Cutting Energy Waste with Custom Projects
Building energy savings into your business has a direct impact on the bottom line and can improve comfort and safety in the workplace as well. Clark Public Utilities offers flexible incentives for custom energy efficiency projects completed in Clark County and support throughout the process.
All commercial and industrial customers of Clark Public Utilities are eligible to participate. Interested customers must contact the utility and receive approval on the project proposal before purchasing new equipment. Incentives are based on verified electrical savings and the utility may assist with energy studies as well as measurement and verification of savings.
Eligible projects include replacement or installation of new energy efficiency equipment or technologies that are above current code. Some examples include upgrades to compress air, refrigeration or general process systems. Industrial equipment upgrades including welders and VFD’s may be eligible for incentives to increase energy efficiency. Your account representative can help identify potential opportunities to lower your energy costs.
For eligible projects approved and coordinated by Clark Public Utilities, incentives include:
- Industrial retrofit projects: $0.25 per kWh up to 50% of cost
- Industrial new construction projects: $0.25 per kWh up to 70% of incremental cost
- Commercial retrofit projects: $.20 per kWh up to 70% of cost
- Commercial new construction: $0.27 per kWh up to 70% of incremental cost
